In general, your child should stay home when:

  • Your child has a temperature of 100.4 or above, they must be fever free for 24 hours before returning.
  • Your child is vomiting, they must be free from vomiting for 24 hours before returning.
  • Your child has uncontrolled diarrhea, they must be free from diarrhea for 24 hours before returning.
  • Your child has strep throat, they must be on antibiotics for 24 hours before returning.

If your child becomes ill at school and I think your child is too sick to benefit from school or is contagious to other children, you will be called to come and take him/her home from school. It is essential that I have a working phone number where you can be contacted during the day and an emergency number in the event you cannot be reached.

 That said, sometimes it is very challenging to know when a child may be sick and needing to stay home from a virus or other physical cause or when emotions such as anxiety may cause symptoms such as headaches or stomachaches.

Attendance Works has these suggestions below:  

  • Don’t let your child stay home unless she is truly sick. Keep in mind complaints of a stomach ache or headache can be a sign of anxiety and not a reason to stay home.

  • If your child seems anxious about going to school, talk to teachers, school counselors, or other parents for advice on how to make her feel comfortable and excited about learning.

For additional suggestions and handouts for different grade levels, you may also visit the Attendance Works website.
