    Guidelines for Keeping Sick Children Home

    A sick child cannot learn effectively and is unable to participate in classes in a meaningful way. Keeping a sick child home prevents the spread of illness in the school community and allows the child an opportunity to rest and recover. Please do not send your child to school if:

    ● He/she has a temperature over 100 degrees. Your child should not come back to school until he/she has been fever free and has not been medicated with Tylenol or ibuprofen in 24 hours.

    ● He/she is having diarrhea or vomiting. Your child should not come back to school until he/she has been free from symptoms for 24 hours.

    ● He/she has been diagnosed with a contagious disease such as strep throat, bronchitis, pink eye, or other illness, until they have taken the antibiotic for 24 hours and are fever free.

    ● He/she is unable to drink or eat or function without pain or discomfort.

     

    Please see Currituck County Schools Student Attendance policy #4400 for more details.
