When should I keep my child at home?  
 
10 ELCA guidelines for keeping your child home from school.
 
Adapted from Children's Healthcare of Atlanta
 
A guide to making an early morning decision.
 
 
 
1 - FEVER - Children with a fever over 100.0 degrees F should stay at home until there is no fever for 24 hours. If you treat a fever with medicine before school, the fever can return and your child may still be contagious. Call your doctor if your child has a fever with pain, rash, weakness, vomiting, or diarrhea. 
 
 
 
2 - DIARRHEA & VOMITING - One event of watery diarrhea or more than one event of vomiting are reasons to keep your child home. If vomiting or diarrhea continues or your child also has a fever, rash, or weakness, call your doctor.
 
 
 
3 - PERSISTENT COUGHING - If your child's cough is worse than you would expect with a cold, keep them at home. If they have a hard time breathing or have a fever, call your doctor.
 
 
 
4 - SORE THROAT - If your child has a sore throat and fever, or a severe sore throat without fever, they should stay home from school. Call your doctor if there is a quick onset of fever and sore throat without cold symptoms.
 
 
 
5 - PINK EYE / CONJUNCTIVITIS - If your child's eye is red with cloudy or yellow drainage, they should stay home until symptoms are gone. Call your doctor for treatment.
 
 
 
6 - PERSISTENT EAR PAIN - Your child should stay at home if they have a lot of ear pain. Call your doctor for treatment.
 
 
 
7 - IMPETIGO - If your child has impetigo (red, oozing blister areas with yellow-gold scabs on the body or face) they should stay home as long as your doctor says.
 
 
 
8 - STOMACH ACHE - If your child complains of a stomach ache, especially if they say it hurts to move and they do not want to eat, they should stay home. Call your doctor.   
 
 
 
9 - LICE - If your child has lice, they need to be treated and nits (eggs) removed. They need to stay at home until the school has cleared them to return.    
 
 
10 - CHICKENPOX - Your child should stay at home until all the bumps are scabbed and no new bumps have shown up in two days. Call your doctor for treatment of symptoms.
