WHEN TO KEEP SICK CHILDREN HOME FROM SCHOOL
Deciding when to keep a sick child home from school is not always easy. It’s important for children to attend school and, for some parents, staying home means missing work. But when a child is truly sick, they need to stay home, in the care of an adult, to get well and to prevent spreading illness to others.
Please keep the school office up to date with current phone numbers so you or an alternate contact can be reached if your child becomes ill or injured at school.
The following information may help you decide when to keep your child at home. “Child” refers to all school-aged children including adolescents. This information does not take the place of consulting a medical provider.
