Fever over 100.4 degrees within past 24 hours
Vomiting or diarrhea within past 24 hours
Sore throat and swollen glands
Undiagnosed, suspicious rash or skin eruptions
Earache, severe headache or drainage from eyes
Students should remain home for 24 hours after an acute illness or after starting
antibiotics for a diagnosed infection
When the School nurse has to dismiss a child who is ill
When a child becomes ill at school, a parent or guardian will be notified and are
expected to come for the child immediately. A child should never be left at school for more than an hour when ill, while waiting for a parent to come and bring him or her home.  If a parent can not pick up his or her ill child, then the alternate emergency contact person will need to come and get the student.
