When To Stay Home
A student should stay home if they:
- Have a fever over 100 degrees or greater. A student should remain home for 24 hours after their temperature returns to normal without the use of Tylenol, Advil, Motrin, or combination cold medications, such as Dayquil.
- Have vomited. They should remain home for 24 hours after vomiting stops.
- Have diarrhea. They should remain home for 24 hours after diarrhea stops.
- Have a persistent cough
It is great that students want to come to school, but it is very important to stop the spread of germs throughout the school.
STAY HOME WHEN YOU ARE TOO SICK TO COME TO SCHOOL. DO NOT COME IN TO BE EVALUATED BY THE NURSE. THIS CAUSES GERMS TO SPREAD TO CLASSMATES AND BUS PARTNERS. TAKE THEM TO THE DOCTOR.
