    Every year, a number of students become ill for many reasons, including exposure to other ill children in the classroom.  To help you make decisions about whether or not to send your child to school, we have put together a list of indicators to help you to decide.

    A child must not be in school and will be sent home if the following condition(s) are present:
    1. Fever 101 degrees or higher.  A child must be fever-free for 24 hours (without fever-reducing medication) before returning to school.
    2. Persistent cough.
    3. Sore throat with fever and/or white spots on the throat-if strep throat is diagnosed, the child must be on medication and fever free for 24 hours (without fever reducing medication) before returning to school.
    4. Rash with fever and/or signs of illness or behavioral changes (i.e.  chicken pox, measles, etc.)
    5. Skin sores on an exposed surface that are weeping fluid and cannot be covered.
    6. Vomiting- 2 or more times in 24 hours. A child must be free of symptoms before returning to school.
    7. Diarrhea- 2 or more loose/watery stools in a 24 hour period. A child must be free of symptoms before returning to school.
    8. Red, itchy, and purulent draining eyes.  If conjunctivitis or "pink eye" is diagnosed, the child must be on medication for 24 hours before returning to school.
