    • Fever (temperature of 100℉ or greater without medication) - Please do not give medication to reduce the fever and then send the student to school.
    • Diarrhea - Students should remain home for 24 hours past the last episode.
    • Nausea and/or Vomiting
    • Severe cough, cold, sore throat, earache or stomach ache
    • Constant nasal drainage (very runny nose)...If drainage becomes yellow or green, keep your child home, consult doctor, and bring doctor’s note when student returns to school.
    • Undiagnosed rash - Have doctor examine and bring doctor’s note when student returns to school
    • Watery, pink color to the eyes with drainage from the eyes/crust on eyelashes -Have doctor examine and bring doctor’s note when student returns to school 24 hours after treatment has begun

    Students should be free of fever, vomiting, and diarrhea for 24 hours before returning to school.


    If your child has an open wound or sore, please make sure it is covered with a bandage and write a note to your child’s teacher.
