WHEN SHOULD MY CHILD STAY HOME FROM SCHOOL?

Please take a few minutes at home to carefully check your child’s health before he/she leaves for school each morning.
A student's absence should be reported on the School Absence Hotline by calling: 858-613-0693.
The following are a few suggestions, which may help to guide you:

REASONS FOR KEEPING YOUR CHILD HOME:

Illness during the night
Fever is present (100 degrees or greater)
Complaints of nausea, upset stomach, vomiting, headache, diarrhea prior to leaving for school
Development of a rash on face and/or body
Has a severe cold, cough and/or sore throat
Has inflamed eye(s) with discharge from them
Please Remember: An ill child cannot function properly in the classroom. The spread of illness and disease through class or school can be more easily monitored if sick children remain at home during the acute stage of an illness. If the school health tech detects any of the above, your child will be sent home.

People with influenza-like illness are to remain home until at least 24 hours after they are free of fever (100o F [37.8o C]) without the use of fever-reducing medications.

Homework can also be requested on this phone message, please indicate when you will be picking it up.
