From the School Nurse:
This has been an extremely tough year for sickness. Please review the following helpful tips:

Should I keep my child home?
Does your child have: 
Fever of 100° F or higher?   __Yes      __No 
(Take the child’s temperature before giving him/her fever-reducing medicine, like Tylenol.) 
Sore throat?      __Yes      __No 
Cough?      __Yes      __No

 ▪ If you checked “yes” for fever AND one of the other symptoms, keep your child home for at least 24 hours after his or her fever is gone without fever-reducing medicine. For many children this will be 5 to 7 days. Your child should feel well enough to participate in school before returning. If you have questions about your child’s health or symptoms, call your child’s doctor or clinic.


 When you report your child’s absence please indicate if your child has a fever of 100 degrees or more, including a cough and/or sore throat.
