LAKE STREET SCHOOL NURSE
Sometimes it can be difficult trying to decide if your child is well enough to attend school when they tell you that they do not feel well. Attendance at school is important for their academic success. Children with a fever of 100, vomiting or diarrhea should remain home for 24 hours without the use of medication to make sure the symptoms have resolved or until your doctor sends a note that your child is not contagious. Students on antibiotics for strep throat, scarlet fever, impetigo, MRSA, for example need to be excluded from school until they have completed 24 hours of the antibiotic and are fever free. Children with pink eye need to have at least one dose of antibiotics before returning to school. If you have a question about your child staying home, please feel free to contact me at 860-870-6088.
A physician's note will be needed if the student cannot participate in outdoor recess.
