Hooty Health: What is TOO sick for school?

Cold and flu season will soon be upon us, and Nurse Baskerville has shared some important guidelines in helping to determine if your child is “Too Sick For School.” Your child should be kept home if he/she is too sick to be comfortable at school, or if he/she might spread a contagious disease to other children. Please refer to the attached chart as a helpful reference for possible causes of illnesses and symptoms, and whether or not they mean your child is too sick for school.
