Student Illness Protocols

Children should only be in school when they can fully participate in their educational program. Therefore, children with the following should stay at home and or will be referred home by the nurse or other school personnel:

  1. If a child has a fever over 100 degrees, parents must keep the child home until he/she is fever-free for 24 hours without the aid of medication.

  2. If a child has diarrhea, parents must keep the child home for 24 hours after the condition ends. Diarrhea is 3 or more episodes of loose stools in a 24 hour period.

  3. If a child vomits, parents must keep the child home for 24 hours after the condition ends.

  4. Under state and local Health Department regulations, if your child has been diagnosed with certain illnesses they must remain home until readmission criteria have been met.
