WHEN TO KEEP YOUR CHILD HOME

One of the major problems that often confront parents of school age children is deciding whether to keep a child home when he/she complains of not feeling well. The following guidelines may assist parents in making an informed decision about whether to send a child to school or whether to a child home.

It is important to remember that a child who comes to school when ill is unlikely to be able to fully participate in learning activities. They also pose a health risk to other students and staff if they are sick with a communicable disease.

 

REASONS YOU SHOULD KEEP YOUR CHILD HOME FROM SCHOOL...

 

FEVER – A fever is a warning sign that all is not right with the body. It frequently signals an infection. Any child with a temperature 100° or greater should be kept home. REST AT ONSET of an illness conserves energy, providing the body with strength to resist further infection. The child should not return to school until he/she has been fever free for 24 hours.

SEVERE STOMACHACHE – Stomachaches are a pretty common compliant for middle schoolers, however, if your child is complaining of a stomachache that is severe and persistent enough to limit their activity – they should be kept home from school and if it persists, you should consult your physician.

VOMITING – If vomiting occurs, your child should not be sent to school until they are feeling better and are able to keep food and liquids down. The child should not return to school until he/she has been vomiting free for 24 hours.

DIARRHEA – If diarrhea occurs, your child should not be sent to school until they are symptom free.  The child should not return to school until he/she has been diarrhea free for 24 hours.

RASH – Because a rash may indicate a common communicable disease, such as chicken pox, your child should be kept home ill – consult your physician.

SEVERE PAIN – In cases of severe pain, whether it is toothache, earache or headache, etc., if it limits the activity of your child, your child should be kept home. If severe pain persists, contact the appropriate physician.

COLDS - The common cold presents the most frequent problem for parents. A child with a hacking cough or heavy nasal congestion belongs at home as these symptoms contribute to the disruption of class and the spread of germs.

 

If you send your child to school, we assume that you have used your best judgment and believe that he/she will be able to make it through the school day. You may send over the counter medication with your child as long as it is accompanied by a Parent/Physician Medication Authorization slip.  Our policy has been that unless your child is vomiting, running a fever or exhibiting severe illness, we try to keep them at school.

If you have any doubts about sending your sick child to school, it may be best to keep them home.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the health room aide at 262-376-6539 or our district nurse 262-376-6149.
