Advice for Illness
Parents and guardians are asked to keep their children home from school for the following reasons:
- Fever greater than 100 degrees Fahrenheit
- If your child is ill enough that they will not be able to effectively participate in school
As a guide for parents, the following has been taken from the Rules and Regulations for the Control of Communicable Diseases provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Health:
Your child should be without fever, active vomiting, or diarrhea for 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medications) prior to returning to school. During pandemic illnesses and/or other outbreaks of contagious illnesses, the district will follow the Department of Health's guidance for when students will be excluded from school.
