When a Student Should Stay Home/ When a Student Can Return After Illness

  • Fever- A child with a fever should be kept at home until they are fever-free for 24 hours without medication. At school, we go by the guidelines from the Ohio Department of Health which considers a temperature of 100.0 F or above a fever.

  • Diarrhea/Vomiting- Please keep your child home from school until they have not had an episode of diarrhea or vomiting for 24 hours.                                                      
  • COVID-19: A child can return to school after a positive COVID test as long as their symptoms are improving, they have been fever-free for 24 hours or more. Masking, while recommended, is no longer required.                                                          
  •  Pinkeye- A child with pinkeye is considered contagious and should not be in school until they have completed 24 hours of prescribed eye drops.                                
  • Strep Throat- A child with strep throat should stay at home until they have completed 24 hours of the prescribed antibiotic treatment.
