When To Stay Home Due To Illness

When can my child return to school after having the flu?

Keep your child home for at least 24 hours after the fever is gone and 24 hours after vomiting and/or diarrhea subsides. Your child’s medical information is kept confidential, so please call your school’s Health Office if your child has been diagnosed with flu/influenza.  Feel free to contact your school’s Health Office with any additional questions or concerns. 


  • Handwashing with soap and water, especially before meals. 

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. 

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.  Germs spread this way.

  • Clean and disinfect hard surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs, including bathroom surfaces, kitchen counters, and toys.
