A recent article in the Home New Tribune answers the question of when is a child too sick for school. The article points out that although a day home for a child can mean a day off of work for a parent and subsequent lost wages, it is nevertheless important to note symptoms of real illness parents should look for before sending their children to school:

  • Temperature above 101 degress F in the morning 
  • Diarrhea, where more than one abnormally loose stool has occurred in the last 24 hours
  • Vomiting any time after 6:00 PM the preceding evening
  • Severe coughing where the child gets red or blue in the face or the child makes a high-pitched croupy or whooping sound after he or she coughs
  • Difficult or rapid breathing
  • Yellowish skin or eyes
  • Pinkeye (conjunctivities), evidenced by tears, redness of eyelid lining and irritation, followed by swelling and discharge of pus
  • Infected skin patches that are crusty, bright yellow, dry or gummy any contagious disease, like chicken pox, measles, mumps, mono, etc.
  • If an antibiotic has been given for an ear infection or sore throat, wait 24 hours before sending a child back to school
  • Severe itching of the body or scalp could indicate the presence of lice
  • Severe sore throat or trouble swallowing
  • Constant running nose
