Cold and Flu Season
Cold and flu season is here, and our School Nurses are seeing a significant increase in students with illnesses at school. This is just a reminder that if your child is ill for any reason, they should stay home from school. If you are unsure if you child is well enough for school, refer to the guidance below:  

  • Fever: A temperature of 100.4 or higher is an indication that your child could be contagious. Giving a child Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Advil (ibuprofen) will bring the temperature down and make them more comfortable, but it will not prevent the potential spread of illness to others. Please keep your student with a fever home until fever free for 24 hours, without the use of fever-reducing medication.
  • Vomiting: If your child has vomited within the past 24 hours, please keep them home.
  • Diarrhea: If your child has had three or more watery stools in a 24 hour period, especially if your child acts or looks ill, it is recommended that they do not come to school.
  • Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye): Because of the extremely contagious nature of Bacterial Pink Eye, we ask you to consult your doctor before sending your child to school with the following symptoms: thick mucus or pus draining from eye, if eye is red, puffy, itchy or painful.
  • Rash: A child with an unidentified body rash should be kept home until you have consulted a doctor.
  • Appearance/Discomfort: If your child appears unusually tired, irritable, pale or has an unusual lack of appetite please keep student home for rest and surveillance.
