Is my child too ill for school?

Many parents are frequently concerned about when to keep children home or send them to school. The following information is intended to help parents with this decision:
Your student should stay home if he/she:

  • has a fever of 100 degrees or more, and should remain at home for 24 hours after their temperature returns to normal.
  • has vomited or has had diarrhea, and should remain at home for 24 hours after the last episode.
  • has any rash that may be disease-related or you do not know the cause.
  • has inflamed or draining eyes or ears.

If a student is ill, please call the school daily at (320) 573-2174 to report the absence and illness. If you have any questions about the above information or illness, please call the school nurse or your family physician.
