Guidelines to follow when your child is sick: 
Students with Fever/Illness Students may be sent home for illness at the discretion of the school nurse. Reasons to be sent home include, but are not limited to, fever of 100 degrees or above, vomiting, and diarrhea. Any student with a fever should be kept home until they are fever-free without the use of fever-reducing medication for 24 hours. Students should also have no signs of vomiting or diarrhea for 24 hours prior to returning to school.
 
Handwashing
Handwashing is like a "do-it-yourself" vaccine—it involves five simple and effective steps (think Wet, Lather, Scrub, Rinse, Dry) you can take to reduce the spread of diarrheal and respiratory illness so you can stay healthy. Regular handwashing, particularly before and after certain activities, is one of the best ways to remove germs, avoid getting sick, and prevent the spread of germs to others. http://www.cdc.gov/handwashing/
