Common questions and answers:

Is my child too ill to attend school? Parents are often confronted with the decision if they should send their child to school when they complain of not feeling well. Here are some guidelines that may be helpful in making that decision. It does not cover every decision, and does not take the place of seeking medical attention. Please consult your doctor for specific medical advice.

FEVER – 100 DEGREES OR HIGHER – Fever is a signal that the body is fighting an infection. A child with a temperature of 100 degrees or higher may not attend school. The child should be fever free, without the use of anti fever medications (Tylenol/Ibuprofen) for 24 hours prior to returning to school.

VOMITING – A child who has vomited should wait 24 hours and be able to retain solid food prior to returning to school. A child who is having frequent diarrhea stools should not be at school.

SORE THROAT/COLDS – Minor cold symptoms are common and usually do not interfere with school attendance. A persistent cough and constant nasal drainage may affect your child’s performance at school, and they may be more comfortable at home. RASH – A rash may cover the entire body or just one area. A child that has a rash that is draining or is causing the child to itch should not attend school. A rash accompanied by fever, sore throat, irritability, or vomiting may not attend school, and you should contactyour physician for evaluation and advice on treatment.
