Student Illness

Student Illness

If your child has a Fever (10o F) (37.8o C or greater), nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and/or other Stomach/GI Symptoms, your child needs to remain home.

No student shall return to school until they have been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medicine, even if they feel better. Fever-reducing medicines may contain acetaminophen or Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which include the following active ingredients: Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Magnesium Salicylateo, or Naproxen Sodium.

As you may know, the flu can be easily spread from person to person. Therefore, we are
taking steps to reduce the spread of the flu in school. Parents, we need your help to do this.

Some children may not be able to verbalize their symptoms, which can result in a delay in
responding to their illness, so it is important to watch carefully for the signs and symptoms of flu or
unusual behavior that may be a sign of illness. Symptoms of flu include fever, cough, sore throat,
runny or stuffy nose, body aches, and fatigue. A fever is equal to or greater than 100 degrees
Fahrenheit (37.8 degrees Celsius). If you are not able to measure a temperature, your child might
have a fever if he or she feels warm, has a flushed appearance, or is sweating or shivering. Prior to
sending your child to school, review the seven common influenza-like symptoms to see which
applies to your child. If students say yes to number 1 or 3, they must stay home.
1. Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and other Stomach/GI Symptoms
2. Headache
3. Fever (100 degrees F) (37.8 degrees C or greater)
4. Sore Throat
5. Cough
6. Nasal congestion
7. Runny nose
