  • Fever of 100 degrees or higher in the last 24 hours (child needs to be fever free for 24 hours, without the use of medicine, before returning to school)
  • Vomiting in the last 12 hours 
  • Diarrhea 
  • Persistent cough 
  • Sore throat with swollen glands 
  • Earache 
  • Widespread body rash or rash of unknown origin
  • Contagious illness, eye or skin infection until treated by your physician and released for school attendance
