Is my child too sick to come to school?

Posted by:

There are many health reasons that warrant staying home from school, and you can always call ahead if you are unsure. If your child has experienced fever, vomiting or diarrhea within the past 24 hours, they are too sick to come to school. Children should be free of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications (such as Tylenol or Motrin) and free of vomiting or diarrhea without medication for at least 24 hours before returning to school.
