Nurse Morgan's Medical Morsel

The cold and flu season is upon us. We have seen lots of illnesses and sent many children home. Although we want children to attend school, there are times when it would be better, for your child and the school, to stay home. It can be hard to decide, so are some guidelines to help:


  • Your child should be fever or vomiting-free (without medication) for 24 hours prior to coming to school. This means if your child is sent home with fever over 100° or vomiting, they may not come back to school the next day.



  • Most children can stay in school with a minor cold. This means no fever, clear nasal drainage, and generally feeling okay.


If your child complains of not feeling well before school, please refrain from telling him/her to call you if he/she does not feel better. Almost every child will immediately ask to see me, tell me what you said, and say he/she needs to go home. A good alternative to this is to call or email me (mludwick2@sdale.org) and let me know about your concerns. Assess your child in the morning (including temperature check with a thermometer). If they don’t need to stay home, tell him/her that he/she is fever-free and needs to attend school. If anything changes during the day, we will definitely be in contact with you.
