Cold and Flu Season
Cold and flu season is here. To ensure a healthy learning environment for your student and their teacher this season, here are a few guidelines that should be followed:
- Fever of 100 degrees or greater – students should stay home and be fever free for 24 hours without fever-reducing medication before returning to school.
- Vomiting – students should stay home and be vomit free, without medication, for 24 hours before returning to school.
- Diarrhea – if a student has three or more loose stools, they should stay home and be symptom-free, without medication, for 24 hours before returning to school.
- Sore Throat/Cough/Running Nose – if a student has excessive coughing and discharge they should stay home until symptoms lessen. If any of these are accompanied by a fever, students should stay home until fever-free for 24 hours.
