Welcome to the Elementary Nurse's Office!!

2022-2023 Back to School Health Checklist
If your child has any of the following, they must stay home:
1.  Fever. Any temperature of 100.4° Fahrenheit is a fever, and children shouldn’t go to school with fevers. Children should be fever free for 24-hours without the use of medication to bring it down prior to returning to school.
2. Vomiting or diarrhea. Children should be home for 24 hours from the last episode.
3. Bad pain. If your child has a sore knee or a mild headache but is otherwise acting okay, it’s likely fine to give some medicine and send them off. But if the pain is anything more than mild, don’t do it. Pain is always something you want to keep an eye on. Keep them home and call your doctor instead.
4. Severe coughing or anything different about your child’s breathing. Even if your child does not have a fever, excessive coughing is a reason we will send children home. It is distracting from learning in the classroom and most children do not cover their coughs.
