Students do not perform well in school when they are not feeling well. Staying home will likely shorten the length of the illness and hopefully we can interrupt the spreading of germs in school. General guidelines for returning to school after an illness are:
Student must be fever free for 24 hours without having taken fever-reducing medication such as Tylenol or Ibuprofen.
24 hours on antibiotics for a contagious illness such as Strep throat.
24 hours without vomiting.
