- Temperature of 100º or more during the previous evening or night or in the morning.

- Has a rash that may be caused by a disease or if the cause is unknown, check with your family physician before sending your child to school.
- Until results of laboratory tests (i.e., throat culture, nasal swab) are known.
- Children may return to school when:
- Well enough to participate in normal school activities
- Temperature remains normal for a 24-hour period without the use of fever reducing medications
- Has not vomited or had diarrhea for a 24- hour period.
- On an antibiotic for at least 24 hours OR your health care provider states your child can return to school.
If your child is at home sick, please call your school office daily to report the absence.
