When should I keep my student home?
Parents often wonder what makes a child too sick to go to school, childcare, or camp. The spread of common illnesses, such as flu/colds, gastrointestinal illnesses (diarrhea), pink eye (conjunctivitis), and Strep throat can be limited if children (and adults) who are ill stay home and away from other people.
Is my child too sick to go to school?

- Diarrhea (3 or more loose stools in a 24 hour period)
- Greater than 100.3°F if child has other symptoms or
- Greater than 101°F if child has no other symptoms
