Should my child stay home?
Every day matters at school. Together we can maximize the time all children are healthy and ready to learn by taking a few steps to prevent the spread of cold and flu. Children who exhibit the following symptoms should stay home from school:
* a fever of 99.5 degrees or higher
* Any symptoms that prevent him/her from participating in school activities, such as: excessive tiredness or lack of appetite, productive coughing or sneezing, headache, body aches, ear aches or sore throat.
Please keep your child at home until fever is gone
for at least 24 hours WITHOUT medication.
Always call the school if your child will be absent
AND send in a parental or doctor's note once your child returns to class.
