Fever Guidelines/Too Sick for School?

Fever Guidelines/Too Sick for School?

Please do not send children that are running a temperature or who are ill to school. If you have questions about this, please contact the school nurse, Ms. Malone.

When is sick too sick?

Send me to school if...
I have a runny nose or just a little cough, but no other symptoms.
I haven’t taken any fever-reducing medicine for 24 hours, and I haven’t had
a fever during that time.
I haven’t thrown up or had any diarrhea for 24 hours.
 
Keep me at home if...
I have a temperature higher than 100 degrees even after taking medicine.
I’m throwing up or have diarrhea.
My eyes are pink and crusty.
 

Call the doctor if...
I have a temperature higher than 100 degrees for more than two days.
I’ve been throwing up or have diarrhea for more than two days.
I’ve had the sniffles for more than a week, and they aren’t getting better.
I still have asthma symptoms after using my asthma medicine (and call 911 if I’m
having trouble breathing after using an inhaler).
