When to keep your child home from school:
- Temperature over 100 degrees in the last 12 to 24 hours. If you suspect that they may be sick please check their temperature with a thermometer before sending them to school. If they have a fever it is not appropriate to send them to school, even if you give them acetaminophen or ibuprofen and their fever breaks. Your child will still be contagious to other children and will also not be feeling well enough to learn.
- Vomiting or diarrhea occurred in the last 12 to 24 hours.
- An unexplained rash appeared.
- Red or crusty eye lids or drainage from eyes appeared.
- Headache, cough, sore throat, or congestion severe are enough to interfere with attention to school work.
- Flare ups from asthma occur, that would make it difficult to work in school.
