From PES's Nurse:

ILLNESS TIPS ~ YOUR CHILD IS TO STAY HOME IF THERE IS:

  • FEVER: 100 degrees or greater. He/she should be free of fever for 24 hours without having taken medication to reduce the fever before coming back to school.
  • VOMITING: or has diarrhea (loose, frequent stools). A physician should be contacted if the vomiting and /or diarrhea last longer than 24 yours or becomes severe. NO VOMITING OR DIARRHEA FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE RETURNING TO SCHOOL.
  • STREP THROAT: or sore throat that is accompanied by a fever and enlarged nodules in the neck. A child may return to school 24 hours after beginning the antibiotic and is fever free.
  • COLD/PERSISTENT COUGH: If your child is obviously ill (i.e. Very tired, continuously runny nose, or excessive coughing).
