When to Keep Your Child Home/When They Will Be Sent Home

  • Children should stay at home for at least 24 hours after the last signs of a temperature of 100°F or greater, vomiting, or diarrhea - without the aid of medication.  Other symptoms should also be improving.
  • Students who have a rash not yet diagnosed by a physician, red or pink itchy eye and/or drainage from eyes.
  • Students who report or behave in a way that shows that they are not feeling well enough to be in school (ear aches, body pain, extreme fatigue, etc.).
  •  A child with a bacterial infection that can be spread to other children (strep throat, impetigo, etc.) must be on an antibiotic for at least 24 hours before returning to school.
