Attendance & Illness

Attendance at school is very important! However, the following are times when your child should stay home from school so they do not unwillingly spread illness:

  • Fever over 100 degrees
  • Vomitting
  • Diarrhea
  • If diagnosed with Influenza, please stay home from school for 5 full days

Please keep your child home until they are free from these conditions for a full 24 hours without the aid of medications. 

If your child has been to the doctor and has been prescribed antibiotics, they must wait for 24 hours after the first dose to return to school.  This includes eye drops as well as oral medication.

Medication should be given outside of school times whenever possible.  Ex: Antibiotics prescribed three times per day should be given at home before school, after school, and at bedtime.
