Guidelines for Keeping Sick Children from School
Each day many parents are faced with a decision:† should they keep their sick children at home or send them off to school?† Often the way a child looks and acts can make the decision an obvious one.† The following guidelines should be considered when making the decision:
  • Fever:† The child should remain at home with a fever greater than 100 degrees.† The child can return to school after he/she has been fever free for 24 hours without fever reducer medication.
  • Diarrhea/Vomiting:† A child with diarrhea and/or vomiting should stay at home and return to school only after being symptom-free for 24 hours.
  • Conjunctivitis:† The student may return to school after starting treatment.
  • Rashes:† Common infectious diseases with rashes are most contagious in the early stages.† A child with a suspicious rash should return to school only after being seen by a health care provider and they have authorized the childís return to school.
  • Colds:† Consider keeping your child at home if he/she is experiencing discomfort from cold symptoms, such as nasal congestion and cough.† A continuous green discharge from the nose may be a sign of infection.† Consider having the child seen by your health care provider.
A sick child cannot effectively learn and is unable to participate in classes in a meaningful way.† Keeping a sick child home prevents the spread of illness in the school community and allows the child opportunity to rest and recover.
