Child feeling sick? Fever?
Reminder for Parents from the Marcus Nurse:
This is a gentle reminder that if your student is sick, please keep them at home. School policy states that students with a fever of 100 degrees or more should be at home until they are fever free for 24 hours, without the aid of fever reducing medications. For other diagnosed infectious conditions, such as strep throat, please follow the guidelines and medications recommended by your doctor. This may include staying at home until antibiotics are on board for 24-48 hours.
It is wonderful that students want to be at school! It is not wonderful to have a sick student spreading illness to other students. Please be considerate to others, if your son or daughter is ill, keep them at home. We will welcome them back with open arms, when they are better! And if you have any questions, feel free to contact Nurse Boyd.
