We understand that with work responsibilities, it can be very hard to keep a child at home, or to find someone to care for him/her. However, we need your cooperation so that we can provide a healthy environment for every student.
With cold and flu season is upon us we ask that you be attentive to the following symptoms for these and other illnesses. Please consider keeping your child at home for an extra day of rest and observation if he or she has any of the following :
- Very stuffy nose and/or cough
- Mild sore throat (no fever, no known exposure to Strep)
- Mild stomach ache
Definitely keep your child at home for treatment and observation if he or she has any of the following:
- A FEVER over 100 degrees. If your child is sent home from school with a fever, he/she may not return the next day. Your child may return to school only after his or her temperature has been consistently below 100 degrees for a minimum of 24 hours
- A bad cold, constantly runny nose, and productive cough, even without fever. Your child will be uncomfortable in school, needs his/her rest, and risks sharing germs with classmates.
- Any child who has VOMITED or has DIARRHEA should be kept at home. If prompt improvement does not occur, your physician should be consulted.
- Additional cold and flu symptoms to look out for include: chills; feelings of fatigue, discomfort, weakness or muscle aches; frequent congested (wet) cough; lots of nasal congestion with frequent nose blowing
- A child with STREP THROAT must be kept at home until he/she has been on antibiotic therapy for 24hr.
- If your child has a RASH, he/she should not come to school until it is determined by a physician that it is safe to do so.
- Do not send your child to school if you suspect Conjunctivitis or “PINK EYE”.
