Attendance Matters

When is too sick for school?

Send me to school if…..

  • I have a runny nose or just a little cough, but no other symptoms.
  • I haven’t thrown up or had any diarrhea for 24 hours.
  • I haven’t taken any fever reducing medicine for 24 hours or had a fever during that same time period.

Keep me at home if…..

  • I have a temperature of 100.5 degrees or higher, even after taking medicine.
  • I’m throwing up or have diarrhea.
  • My eyes are pink and crusty.
