Notes from the Nurse
How Do You Know If Your Child Is Too Sick For School?
“Mom, I don’t feel well today!” How many times have you heard this on a school morning? What do you do? How do you decide? Here are some guidelines that might help in deciding whether or not to send your child to school.
- Check Temperature - Students must be fever-free (without fever reducing medication) for 24 hours before returning to school. Please do not give your child Tylenol or Ibuprofen and then send him or her to school.
- Vomited - Do not send your child to school if he/she has vomited or had diarrhea in the last 24 hours.
- Lack of Sleep- If your child has been up half of the night ill, he/she will not be in any condition to come to school and learn. Consider allowing a day to sleep and get well.
It is our goal to find ways to keep your children safe from communicable diseases here at Whitt. By keeping your child home when they are ill, you are protecting others at school and preventing the spread of disease. We ask for your cooperation in helping us maintain a healthy environment for your child. Please remember that the number one way to prevent the spread of germs is to wash your hands!
Thanks for your help in keeping our students healthy and safe!
