Is Your Child Too Sick for School?
Sometimes it can be difficult determining if your child is too sick for school. A runny nose, cough or sore throat is a common complaint among school-aged children, but can also indicate a more serious illness. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends following these three quick questions to determine if your child needs to stay home from school:
-Does your child have a fever greater than 100° F? Fevers are typically a sign of illness which require a child to stay home from school.
-Does your child feel well enough to participate in class? A child who coughed all night, even with no other symptoms, is typically tired the next day and can’t actively engage in class activities.
-Do you think your child has a contagious illness, such as strep throat or pinkeye? If so, keep them at home until they are no longer infectious and have been seen by their healthcare provider.
