Illness & Accidents

When students are ill, it is recommended they stay at home, especially when students have a fever of 100oF or higher.  For questions as to whether to keep your child home from school, please see the APS link "Sick Day Guidelines for Parents."  In the Health Room, we make every attempt to keep students at school, if possible, and will help them get through their day, sometimes with a little snack or just plain TLC.

When students come to the Health Room complaining of being ill or injured, the Health Room staff will make every attempt to notify parents by phone, whenever possible, and if not possible, will send a completed notification form home to the parent with the student, stating the communication.  Please make sure that the Front Office and the Health Room have current contact numbers.

Sick Day Guidelines for Parents

 

 

 

If any symptoms change, worsen or don’t get better please call your health care provider.

Your child can return to school when he or she is well enough to take part in school and has had no fever for 24 hours without medication (acetaminophen, Tylenol®, etc.).

When you have questions, please call your school nurse, school nurse practitioner, or health care provider for more information.

If your child becomes ill and doesn’t feel well enough to take part in school, as parents or guardians, you should keep your child home until the symptoms improve.  This also can help to prevent the spread of the illness to others at school.  These are some of the examples of when your child should be kept home:

  • Active vomiting
  • Active diarrhea – three or more times in six hours
  • The beginning of an airway infection (cold/cough/runny nose) [This is especially important for those who are unable to manage their own body fluids]
  • Extreme tiredness and/or lack of appetite
  • Fever with headache, body aches, earache, sore throat
  • Undiagnosed or unknown rash (a rash that has not been seen or treated by a health care provider)
  • Any of the above symptoms with fever or chills
  • Untreated skin conditions such as impetigo, lice, scabies, or similar conditions
  • If antibiotic treatment is needed, your child should remain home for the first full 24 hours of medication (e.g., if your child has three doses per day ordered, then three doses must be given before the child returns to school)
