Keeping children home with communicable diseases:
Please keep the following guidelines in mind when your child becomes ill:
All communicable diseases should be reported to the school nurse!
Chicken Pox: The child needs to remain home until they are no longer breaking out in lesions, and all lesions have scabbed over. The child must report to the school nurse before returning to class.
Conjunctivitis: The child needs to be examined by their health care provider if conjunctivitis is suspected at which time a note to return to school must be obtained. If conjunctivitis is diagnosed, the child needs to be on medication for at least 24 hours before returning to school.
Head lice/ Nits: The child must be treated with a lice shampoo and may not return to school until they are completely lice and nit free. The child needs to be examined by the school nurse before returning to class.
Strep throat: The child needs to be on antibiotics for at least 24 hours before returning to school.
Vomiting/Diarrhea: The child may not return to school for 24 hours after the last episode of vomiting and/or diarrhea.
Fever: A child needs to be fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications before returning to school. A child with a temperature of 100 degrees or more must stay home from school.
Other illnesses: A note from the student's health provider must accompany a student's return for any contagious illness.Illness at school
When a child becomes ill in school, the school nurse may determine that your child should be sent home. Please try to have a plan in place in the event your child becomes ill at school and needs to go home. Please keep your emergency forms up to date. Also, please provide the nurse with names of people who can take your child home if you can't be reached.
If your child reports not feeling well in the morning, please take a few minutes to check their temperature. Please don't send them to school if they have a fever. Do not send your child to school with a fever or illness, even if you have medicated with Tylenol or Motrin. It is not fair to expose other students to the illness, and your child will need rest to recover from the illness.
