    We are committed to keeping your student and our school community healthy. The following guidelines can be used to help determine when your student should stay home. If your student has any of the symptoms below (cold, flu, COVID-19, or other illnesses) please keep them home and notify the school.

    Your student should stay home if exhibiting:

    • Fever: 100.4°F or higher without medication

    • New onset of cough *

    • New onset of runny nose/congestion *

    • Yellow or green discharge from eyes, ears, nose or any other part of the body

    • More than one episode of vomiting or diarrhea

    • Severe sore throat (consult with medical provider if accompanied by a headache, stomach ache or rash as it may be strep)

    • A rash (rashes that are itchy and scaly should be evaluated by a medical provider before coming to school)

    • Pink eye (red, puffy, itchy eyes) - needs to be evaluated by a medical provider before coming to school

    • Other symptoms of illness 

    *Students with documented chronic condition(s) that cause cough, congestion or allergy-like symptoms should submit a medical note for new onset/change of baseline of symptoms stating the student is not contagious. 


    Students may return to school when:


      • fever has been gone for 24 hours without any fever reducing medications

      • it has been 24 hours since the last episode of vomiting or diarrhea

      • it has been 24 hours since the first dose of antibiotics 


    Please encourage your student to wash their hands and cover their coughs/sneezes! Your help in preventing the spread of illness is greatly appreciated.
