Important Reminder from Health Services

It's that time of year again where many students and family members are coming down with various illnesses. In the schools, we have diagnosed cases of influenza, strep throat, as well as common colds. A rule of thumb is to keep kids home from school with fevers greater than 100 degrees, and students should be fever free for 24 hours without the use of medications. Please do not send kids to school that are vomiting or have diarrhea until symptom free for 24 hours. For coughs and colds, students that are coughing consistently, and pose a risk of infecting others, should remain home until coughing subsides.
