Students should stay home if they have had any of the following within the last 24 hours:
A temperature of 100 degrees or higher
Nausea or vomiting
A temperature of 99 degrees or higher AND exhibiting any of the following symptoms:
Severe sore throat
Rash or skin infection
Red or pink eyes
Students may return to school once they have been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of acetaminophen and ibuprofen. If students have missed three or more consecutive days of school, a doctor’s note is required clearing them to return to school.
Due to many safety concerns, students are not allowed to self-carry over the counter medications. Prescription medication should only be self-carried with a doctor’s order and approval by the health center.
It is important to notify the Health Center. Any student with lice should be treated before returning to school. If lice are identified while at school, the student will not be sent home early but should be treated for lice once they arrive home and before returning to school. The student should be checked by the Health Center after treatment before entering class. Students will only be checked for lice if they are symptomatic, so it is important to be aware of those symptoms.
