Should I Send My Child to School?

If the student:

  • Has a fever of 100° degrees or more. Students are required to stay home and may return to school 24 hours after their fever is gone without fever-reducing medication.
  • Has vomited or has had diarrhea. Students are required to stay home until 24 hours after the last episode.
  • Has a rash that may be disease-related or the cause is unknown. The student must be seen by a health care provider before sending the student to school.
  • Students who have Covid-19, Influenza, Influenza like Illness, or RSV are required to remain home until they have been fever free for 24 hours (without fever-reducing medication), and symptoms are improving overall.

For state reporting purposes, we ask that parents/guardians report symptoms and illnesses when completing school attendance for their student. Please call the health office directly for questions.
