Too Sick for School

We coordinate with the Snohomish Health District in protecting children from certain symptoms of communicable diseases. If your child has any of these symptoms, please keep them home, or make appropriate child care arrangements.

  • APPEARANCE, BEHAVIOR – unusually tired, pale, lack of appetite, difficult to wake, or irritable. This is sufficient reason to keep a child home from school.
  • EYES – red with thick green or yellow drainage may indicate a bacterial conjunctivitis.
  • FEVER – child should remain home with TEMPERATURE OF 100 DEGREES Fahrenheit or higher. Child must be fever free for 24 hours without fever reducing medicine. Greenish nose discharge, and/or chronic cough – should be seen by a health care provider.
  • SORE THROAT – especially with fever or rash. Children with possible strep throat should be seen by their provider.
  • DIARRHEA – watery stools in past 24 hour period especially if the child acts or looks ill.
  • VOMITING – within the past 24 hours.
  • RASH – body rash, especially with fever or itching.
  • EAR PAIN– student with drainage/pain/fever need to be seen by a health care provider. Student does not need to be excluded unless discomfort interrupts the learning process. Untreated ear infections can cause permanent hearing loss.
  • LICE – If your child has head lice please contact your health room to discuss treatment.
  • SCABIES – Children with scabies may be admitted back to school 24 hours after treatment begins.
  • ANTIBIOTICS –If your child has an illness that requires antibiotics, please check with your provider as to when the child may return to school.

Bringing a child to school with the above symptoms puts other children and staff at risk of getting sick. While we regret any inconvenience this may cause, in the long run this means less illness and fewer lost workdays for parents.


Flu and Influenza

It is Flu season, and not too late to get vaccinated! Check with your doctor’s office, medical clinic, or a local pharmacy to get the Influenza vaccine.

The Flu virus is spread from person to person through droplets, or contaminated surfaces. People infected with the flu can spread the flu to someone else before symptoms develop and up to 5-7 days after becoming sick.

If you or your child has the Flu: it is important to protect the health of others by covering your cough, frequent hand washing, and staying home away from crowds when your are ill.

When reporting your child’s school absence, please specify their symptoms as we report these specifics to the Snohomish Health district for disease surveillance.
