• Too Sick for School? 

     

    If your child has any of the following symptoms, you should keep them home. We strongly recommend contacting your child’s healthcare provider to discuss his/her symptoms.

     

    ANY OF THE FOLLOWING:           

    Fever 100 degrees or higher                                              Sore Throat

    Cough                                                                                       Headache

    Shortness of Breath                                                             Diarrhea

    Vomiting                                                                                  Nausea

    Changes in sense of smell                                                 Chills/Rigors

    Changes in sense of taste                                                  Congestion/Runny Nose

    Difficulty Breathing                                                             Fatigue       

     

    If, after consulting with your child’s healthcare provider, it is determined that your child’s symptom(s) are not related to an acute illness, your child may return to school after being fever free for one day (24 hours) with no meds (if fever present) provided a doctor’s note is submitted.


    Similarly, if your child tests negative for COVID-19, s/he may return to school after being fever free for one day (24 hours) with no meds (if fever present) and improved respiratory symptoms provided a lab report or note from a health care provider is submitted prior to your child’s return to school.

    If your child has been identified as a "close contact" to a positive COVID-19 case at home or school, they should remain home until they are symptom-free. (Refer to GASD Covid FAQ page.)

    If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your school nurse.
