If your student has a temperature above 100 degrees, vomiting, diarrhea, or is not well enough to participate in school, please keep your student home and seek the advice of a healthcare professional as needed. Students may return to school once they have been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications, and they are well enough to participate. Students may return to school once 24 hours have passed since their last episode of vomiting or diarrhea.

Encourage your student to perform routine hand hygiene and cover their cough.
