When should I keep my child home?


With the recent outbreak of the H1N1 virus, it is important for parents to keep their children home if they feel they are ill.  Below are some guidelines to follow if you feel your student may be sick:

> temperature of 100 degrees  or above ( must be free of fever for 24 hours to return)

> persistent cough or thick yellowish discharge from nose

> diarrhea or vomiting ( must be free from symtoms for 24 hours)

Parents should contact your school nurse if you have any doubts or concerns. Please refer to the home page for detailed information about the H1N1 virus.
