Sick Day Guidelines
These are some of the examples of when your child should be kept home:
- Active vomiting
- Active diarrhea – three or more times in six hours
- The beginning of a cold/cough/runny nose [This is especially important for those who are unable to cover their cough]
- Extreme tiredness and/or lack of appetite
- Fever with headache, body aches, earache, sore throat
- Undiagnosed or unknown rash (a rash that has not been seen or treated by a health care provider)
- Any of the above symptoms with fever or chills
- Untreated skin conditions such as impetigo, lice, scabies, or similar conditions
- If antibiotic treatment is needed, your child should remain home for the first full 24 hours of medication (e.g., if your child has three doses per day ordered, then three doses must be given before the child returns to school)
If any symptoms change, worsen or don’t get better please call your health care provider.
Your child can return to school when he or she is well enough to take part in school and has had no fever for 24 hours without medication (acetaminophen, Tylenol®, etc.).
