Parents/Guardians - With cold and flu season upon us, please keep the following guidelines in mind when deciding whether or not to send your child to school. This will help to control the spread of infectious diseases at school and allow your child to be available for learning. Students should remain home for the following reasons:

 

  • For a temperature greater than 100 degrees. Children should be fever free for 24 hours without the use of medication such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen before coming back to school.

  • If diagnosed with a strep infection. Students need to be on an antibiotic for a minimum of 24 hours, fever free and feeling well before returning to school.

  • If your child has vomited or had persistent diarrhea (3 times or more in a day).

  • If your child has a heavy, moist productive cough, chest congestion, or discolored nasal drainage.

  • If your child has pinkeye (conjunctivitis). Students need to have completed 24 hours of medication and have no visible redness or discharge before returning to school. Students returning to school should be kept home until they have been symptom-free for 24 hours.

  • If your child has been diagnosed with influenza please keep them home until they are fever free and have not had flu-like symptoms for 24 hours.

Please continue to remind your child of the importance of frequent hand washing, healthy eating, avoid sharing drinks and food, and proper use and disposal of tissues during this cold and flu season. When notifying the school of your child’s absence, please give us the reason for the absence. This will allow us to be sure we get parents notified if we receive outbreaks of specific illnesses in classrooms.

 

Thank you.

Amanda Lewis, RN
