Information for Parents

WHEN SHOULD YOU KEEP YOUR CHILD HOME?

You, as the parent, are the best judge of whether to send your child to school or keep them home. A sick child will not be focused enough to learn and he/she has the potential to be exposed to even more germs from school. Give their system time to recuperate. Your child should be kept home from school if he/she:

  • Has a communicable disease e.g. flu, stomach or intestinal virus.

  • Fever of 100 or more within the last 24hrs. Your child should be fever free for 24 hrs. before returning to school.

  • Vomiting/diarrhea within the last 24hrs.

  • Pain that requires the use of narcotic medications.

  • An upper respiratory illness with significant coughing and/or nasal discharge.
