SICK GUIDELINES & HEALTH INFORMATION FOR PARENTS
Below are the quarantine guidelines used to determine when a child may return to classes. These are the guidelines published by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. There may be exceptions to the guidelines, but the following practices are considered routine best practice.
Please notify the school office if your child has any of the below illnesses. We ask that you call the school rather than contacting your child’s teacher. Please mention what symptoms of illness your student is experiencing.
- May return to school when fever free for 24 hours without the use of medication to lower the temperature. A fever is considered having a body temperature of 100.4 degrees and over. Fever reducing agents include acetaminophen (Tylenol) and ibuprofen (Advil).
- May return after being diarrhea free for 24 hours without the use of medication. Exception: If a health care provider determines illness is due to dietary changes, medication, or hard stools.
- May return after being free of vomiting for 24 hours without the use of medication. Exception: If a health care provider determines illness is not communicable due to other factors.
- Students may be excluded from school until seen by provider and directives are given stating that rash is not contagious; especially when associated with a fever, sore throat, or other symptoms.
