• School is no place for a sick child. If your child has had a fever (temperature more than 99.9) at home do not send them back to school until they are fever free for 24 hours, without the use of medication such as Tylenol. Do not send your child to school with any vomiting, diarrhea, rashes, or any other contagious diseases like strep throat or pink eye. They are usually able to return to school after they have had no symptoms for 24 hours and/or have been on antibiotics for 24 hours.
