A Message from the Health Room
In an effort to decrease the spread of contagious illness at school, the school district would like to remind you of the following:
- If your student has fever, they must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school (this means without the use of fever reducing medications).
Fever is defined as a temperature of 100.4 or greater.
- If your student has diarrhea, they must be diarrhea free for 24 hours before returning to school
(this means without the use of diarrhea suppressing medication). Diarrhea is defined as 3 or more episodes of loose stools in a 24 hour period.
- A student must not come to school if vomiting 2 or more times in 24 hours. A student should have 1 or 2 meals without vomiting before returning to school.
If you have questions concerning your student’s health, please contact your school nurse. Thank you for your assistance in decreasing the spread of illness.
