Should My Child Stay Home?

In order to prevent the spread of infectious diseases, please keep a child home if he or she has:

  • a runny nose, sneezing and coughing

  • a red sore throat

  • an earache

  • unexplained skin rashes

  • pink eyes

  • headache

  • fever during the past 24 hours

  • vomiting or diarrhea during the past 24 hours

Please exercise consideration for others when deciding whether to send your child to school. Remember, a child who is ill will not function well in class.
