Making the right call when your child is sick
Should I keep my child home or send him/her to school?
School guidelines advise a child stay home if he/she:
- Has a fever of 100 degrees or higher
- Has been vomiting or has diarrhea
- Has very red, irritated eye(s)
- Has a rash not evaluated by a medical provider
- Has head lice or nits
- Has symptoms that keep him/her from participating in school, such as:
- Deep or uncontrollable cough and sneezing
- Severe pain from ear ache, stomach ache, body aches or headache
WI state law (118.15) states that a child may not be excused for more than 10 days in a school year.
Fever (100 degrees or higher):
- Keep your child home until his/her fever has been gone without medicine for 24 hours.
Vomiting or diarrhea:
- Keep your child home for 24 hours after the last time he/she vomited or had diarrhea and is eating a normal diet.
- Keep your child home at least 24 hours after the first dose of antibiotic.
