Should I keep my child home?

Nurses Notes on Illness....... sick kid

There are times when your child may be ill and needs to stay home. Here are some guidelines for you to follow. Please keep your child home if they have:

** A temperature of 100 degrees or above. They must be fever free for 24 hours without medication before returning to school.
** Vomited in the past 24 hours or has severe nausea, stomach pains or diarrhea.
** A persistent, productive cough.
** A red, painful throat or glands on the side of the neck that are swollen.
** Flu like symptoms: fever, runny nose, cough, aches.

If you keep your child home when their immune system is compromised they will be able to recover quicker and be less likely to contract other illness. Please encourage your child to wash their hands often, especially after using the bathroom, after recess and before eating. By working together we can help prevent the spread of germs in your child's class and unnecessary days absent.
