    Your Child May return to school when they are fever free, have not vomited or had
    diarrhea for 24 hours without over the counter medications:
    ● Elevated temperature of 100.4 degrees or greater
    ● Acute cold, sore throat or persistent cough
    ● Nausea, vomiting or abdominal pain
    ● Repeated diarrhea
    ● Red or inflamed eyes/lids
    ● Suspected and/or untreated impetigo, scabies or lice
    If your child is ill, please have him/her stay home. Please notify the school
    nurse if your child develops any other contagious illnesses or conditions, such
    as, flu, COVID-19, chicken pox, head lice, impetigo, pink eye, scarlet fever, strep
    throat, etc. Children may return to school 24 hours after an antibiotic has been
    started for a strep infection or pink eye
