When to keep your child at home
9 months ago
A child should stay home from school if he or she has a temperature of 100 degrees or higher. If a child is treated by a medical provider for an illness, where an antibiotic is prescribed, the child should have received 24 hours of the antibiotic before returning to school. The child should be fever free (less than 100 degrees) for 24 hours, without the use of a fever reducing medication, in order to return to school.
