Guidance from the Nursing Staff Regarding Fever and Flu Illnesses
QUESTION: When can my child return to school after illness, fever or the flu?
Children with illness, fever or the flu should be isolated at home, away from other people.
They should not return to school until they have had no fever for at least 24 hours without the aid of fever control medication, and they they feel well for 24 hours. Remind your child to protect others by covering their nose and mouth when coughing, sneezing, and washing their hands. Please contact your child's school nurse if you have any questions or concerns.
