Illness at School

The school environment can be an excellent medium for the rapid spread of illness. Any student assessed in the Health Service Office will be dismissed with the following symptoms:

  • Vomiting in the last 24 hours
  • Diarrhea in the last 24 hours
  • Temperature 100 F or above in the last 24 hours
  • Suspected or confirmed communicable diseases
  • Other symptoms upon discussion with parent/guardian

Absences and Return to School

Your child may return to school after an absence when:

  • He/she has been on an antibiotic for twenty-four hours
  • No vomiting/diarrhea for twenty-four hours
  • Fever-free for twenty-four hours without the aid of a fever-reducing medication

A note from your physician is required if your child has been absent for five or more consecutive school days. The School Nurse is available to facilitate transition back into the classroom and coordinate planning for medications, treatments, and equipment if needed.
