When to Stay Home From School
As we navigate the seasons throughout the year, our school nursing staff regularly encounter various illnesses. To uphold a safe and healthy learning environment, please adhere to these guidelines:
Health Priority: The well-being of our students is our foremost concern. We strongly recommend keeping sick children at home.
Impact of Illness: Illness can weaken the immune system, making children more susceptible to infections. This can result in increased absences and disruptions in the classroom.
Symptoms to Monitor: Please vigilantly assess your child's health and ensure they stay home if they display any of these symptoms:
- Fever (above 100 degrees per NPCSD guidelines)
- Sore throat
- Runny nose
- Vomiting or diarrhea
Return to School: Children should only return to school once they have been symptom-free for at least 24 hours. This precaution promotes a complete recovery and prevents illness transmission.
We appreciate your continuous cooperation and support in maintaining a healthy school environment throughout the year.
