Dear Jr/Sr HS Families,
A quick reminder regarding when to keep you child home with illness. It can be difficult to know when to send children to school if they tell you that they do not feel well. Usually, the best place for them is in school, but there are some times when keeping them home to rest or call for an appointment with your  health care provider is recommended. 

Please keep your child home and/or contact your child’s doctor for:

  • Fever 100° or greater 
  • Vomiting and/or diarrhea within the last 24 hours 
  • Severe sore throat along with fever and feeling ill for more than 48 hours,
  • or after exposure to Strep throat infection 
  • Honey-crusted sores around the nose or mouth or rash on other body parts
  • Large amounts of mucous (liquid) from their nose, with face pain or headache
  • Severe ear pain or fluid coming from the ear 
  • Severe headache, especially with fever

If your child has a fever, it is not a good idea to give them medicine like Tylenol or Advil and send them to school because as soon as the medicine wears off, the fever may return and you will be called to come and pick up your child. Please keep children home for 24 hours after the fever ends or they have completed 24 hours of medication if prescribed by your health care provider. 

If you find your child is frequently asking to stay home from school, if they are falling behind or appear anxious about  school, or if there does not appear to be any physical symptoms, contact your school nurse and your health care provider  to discuss your concerns.  

Remind children to throw away used tissues, cover their mouths when they cough or sneeze, keep their hands away from  their face, and to wash hands often with soap and warm water will help keep everyone healthier. 

Please call us with any concerns or questions.

NYS School Health Screenings: 
The district’s School Health Services program supports your student’s academic success by promoting health in the school setting. One way that we provide care for your student is by performing the health screenings as mandated by the State of New York. During this school year, the following screenings will be required or completed at school:

Distance and near acuity for all newly entering students and students in Pre-K or Kindergarten, Grades 1, 3, 5, 7, and 11.
Color perception screening for all newly entering students.

Hearing screening for all newly entering students and students in Pre-K or Kindergarten, Grades 1, 3, 5, 7, and 11.

Scoliosis (spinal curvature) screening for all girls in grades 5 and 7, and boys in grade 9.

A letter will be sent home if there are any findings on the screening done at school that would cause concern or need medical follow-up.
Please call the school’s Health Office if you have any questions or concerns.
