TOO SICK FOR SCHOOL


PLEASE CALL THE OFFICE AS SOON AS YOU REALIZE YOUR CHILD WILL BE ABSENT AT
(909) 307-2460


No parent wants a child to miss school without a good reason. But sending a sick child to class can make a condition worse and put other children at risk.

The following guidelines can help you make that tough morning call:

Don't keep a child home for:
  • Sniffles, a runny nose and a mild cough without a fever. It could be a common cold or an allergic response to dust, pollen, or seasonal changes.
  • Vague complaints of aches, pain, or fatigue.
  • A single episode of diarrhea or vomitting without any other symptoms (but let school officials know the child was ill and where you can be reached).
Keep a child home when (s)he has:
  • A fever of 100° or more: Coupled with a rash, earache, sore throat, lethargy or nausea, fever may signal a highly contagious infection. Keep child home at least 24 hours after temperature has returned to normal with out help from medication.
  • A persistent, productive cough and wheezing coupled with thick or constant nasal discharge. Call your pediatrician if the child is having trouble breathing, is dehydrated or is atypically weak or sleepy.
  • Persistent vomitting or diarrhea during the previous night.
  • An undiagnosed rash, especially when there's a fever and behavioral changes. Check with the doctor as soon as possible.
  • Purulent conjunctivitis (pinkeye) in which there's a white or yellow discharge, often with matted eyelids after sleep, eye pain and redness. School can wait until eyes are clear or have been treated with antibiotics for 24 hours.
  • Strep throat/scarlet fever. Stay home until clinical recovery or after effective antibiotic therapy for 24-48 hours.
  • Head lice (pediculosis). Stay home until treated and all nits are removed.
  • Scabies (body lice). Stay home 24 hours after start of treatment.
  • Impetigo. Stay home until skin is clear or 24 hours after start of treatment.
  • Chickenpox. Stay home five days after the onset of blisters, or until all pox are scabbed over and dry.
