    With flu/illness season upon us we would like to emphasize our general practice for ill students.

    • If a student has had a fever of 100 or more, he/she should stay home for 24 hours after the temperature returns to normal without fever reducing medications.
    • If a student has vomited or had diarrhea he/she should stay home until 24 hours after the last episode.
    • If a student has a rash that may be disease-related or you do not know the cause, check with your healthcare provider before sending him/her to school
    • If a student has started antibiotics, please keep him/her home until he/she has had a full 24 hour course of them.
    • Students not feeling well enough to participate in their normal school day due to illness should not come to school and should stay home to rest.

    Keeping your child home allows him/her time to rest and prevents exposing classmates/faculty to possible illness.

    Also, please inform us of any illnesses your child is being treated for.  This allows us to track and report illness as required by the MN Department of Health.

    At this time we are seeing an increase in illness.  Please report the symptoms your student is experiencing when you are calling them out ill.  This helps us determine when we need to report to the MN Department of Health.  This will also help us collect better data to report for specific illnesses that we are experiencing in our school district.
