Parents/Guardians should not send a student to school, an extra-curricular activity, or an athletic event when a student:

  • Has a fever of at least 100 degrees. Should be fever-free for at least 24 hours without the use of any fever-reducing medication 24 hours before returning to school.
  • Has thrown up (due to illness) or had three or more watery, loose diarrhea stools any time in the last 24 hours.
  • Has an upper respiratory infection with uncontrolled nasal drainage, coughing, or sneezing that may infect others.
  • Was sent home from school the previous day or the same day with a fever (100 degrees or higher).
  • Has a significant rash that has not been diagnosed by a healthcare provider.
  • Is complaining of substantial pain for a significant duration until a healthcare provider has examined the student.
  • Is taking prescription-strength medication, which impairs their ability to stay awake/alert and safely navigate stairs and hallways.

If a student becomes ill during school hours, the building nurse will contact the parents. If the Building Nurse is unable to reach the parents, emergency contacts listed for your student in Veracross/Magnus Health will be contacted. Emergency contacts must be at least 18 years old and have a valid photo ID. Sick or injured students cannot be kept in the nursing clinic for more than one hour.
