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
Shortness of Breath Diarrhea
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).
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.
If your child has been identified as a "close contact" to a positive COVID-19 case at home or school, it is recommended you contact your primary care provider for guidance.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your school nurse.
