Should my Child Stay Home From School?

Please keep your son/daughter home from school if...

  1.  The student has a temperature in the morning greater than 100.0 before you give Tylenol or Ibuprofen.
  2. The student has vomited in the past 12 hours.
  3. The student has diarrhea for any reason.
  4. …Student needs antibiotic treatment.  Your child should remain home for the first full 24 hours of medication even if they are feeling better after the first dose.

**Your child must be fever free for 24 hours**(without the use of Tylenol or Ibuprofen)

Following these simple guidelines can help to prevent the spread of the illness to other children and staff.

If any symptoms change, worsen or don’t get better please call your health care provider.

When you have questions, please call your school nurse, school nurse practitioner, or health care provider for more information.


A student's health status is directly related to his or her ability to learn. Children with unmet health needs have a difficult time engaging in the educational process. The school nurse supports students success by providing health care through assessment, intervention and follow-up for all children within the school setting. The school nurse addresses the physical, mental, emotional, and social health needs of students and supports their achievement in the learning process. The school nurse not only provides for the safety and care of students and staff but also addresses the need for integrating heath solutions into the education setting.

To contact our office parents can call during school hours from 7:30am to 2:15pm
