Guidelines for Illness

As we are now in the cold and flu season, parents may wonder when to send their children to school or to keep them at home. Our district nursing staff have clear guidelines for parents posted on the District web Health Resources. If you have questions, please feel free to contact our school nurse, Ms. Zimmerman.  

I want to highlight a few items from the health resource. A child MUST be kept at home for: 

  • A fever of 100.0F or higher

  • If your child is vomiting 

  • If your child has diarrhea

  • If your child has been diagnosed with influenza (flu) 

Note: This is not an exhaustive list. Giving fever-reducing medication and sending the student to school when they are feeling ill or have a fever is discouraged.
