Should my Child Stay Home from School?
Parents and students frequently have questions about when it is appropriate to stay home from school because of illness. Please follow these guidelines:
- If your child has had a temperature of 100.0 degrees or higher in the past 24 hours.
- If your child has vomited within the past 24 hours.
- If having your child at school would significantly put others at risk for contracting your child's illness.
- If your child feels ill enough that he/she would not be able to benefit from being at school.
- Please contact your school's health office if you have questions.
