Nurse Reminder to Middle School South Parents

Parents play an important role in their child’s health. To protect the health of all Middle School South students and staff, it is important that each parent be aware of their child’s health BEFORE sending them to school each day.


I need to stress again to you the importance of keeping your child at home if they are sick. If your child feels bad, please check their temperature. If they have a temperature of 100 or more DO NOT SEND THEM TO SCHOOL. This rule applies if they have a fever during the evening or before school in the morning.


STUDENTS MUST STAY HOME UNTIL THE TEMPERATURE STAYS BELOW 100 FOR 24 HOURS WITHOUT MEDICATION SUCH AS TYLENOL, MOTRIN, OR ADVIL.

(FEVER REDUCERS)


For example: if your child feels bad tonight or in the morning and has a temperature of 100.0 you should NOT send them to school tomorrow. Please do not medicate your child and send them to school.


Also if your child has vomiting or diarrhea, please keep them home until they are symptom free for 24 hours. Stomach viruses are very contagious.


Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions about when your child should return to school you may contact me.
