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:

  1. Health Priority: The well-being of our students is our foremost concern. We strongly recommend keeping sick children at home.

  2. 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.

  3. 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)
    • Cough
    • Sore throat
    • Runny nose
    • Vomiting or diarrhea
  4. 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.
