When should someone stay home from school or work? 

1. For COVID, Influenza, RSV (colds):

         For 24 hours until both are true:  fever-free (> 100.4F) without using fever-reducing medications and symptoms are improving over all.

         COVID tests are available in the nurse's office.

2.  Vomiting/diarrhea: stay home while symptomatic and until diarrhea has stopped for 24-48 hours

3.  Pink eye/conjunctivitis:  ONLY if unable to avoid touching eyes, returning to school after 24 hours of antibiotic treatment.

If  a student feels ill during the school day, they should go to the nurse's office to be assessed, and the nurse will contact the parent/guardian as needed.
