When to Keep Your Child Home

  • Children who have the following symptoms should stay home and not come to school until these symptoms have been gone for at least 24 hours without the help of medication.

    • Fever (100 degrees or higher)
    • Sore Throat (with fever or swollen neck)
    • Persistent Vomiting or Diarrhea
    • Rash (with fever and itching)
    • Conjunctivitis/Pink Eye (your child can attend school 24 hours after starting medical treatment)

    A child with a typical cold but no fever or green drainage may come to school.

When a Student Becomes Ill at School

  • If a student becomes ill during the school day, he or she must receive permission from the teacher before reporting to the school nurse. If the nurse determines that the child should go home, the nurse will contact the parent.

     

Medication at School

  • Our clinics must have a Medication Permission Slip on file for students requiring medication administered during school hours. The Over the Counter Medication Form must be signed by a parent/legal guardian. Your child's physician must complete and sign the Prescription Medication Form.

    Medication must be kept in the ORIGINAL bottle.

    Parents are to drop off and pick up leftover medication at the nurse's office. Students are not permitted to carry medication with them in school or on the bus.
