When Should Illness Keep a Student at Home?
Are sniffles and sneezes a sign that students should stay home from school? What about a headache or slight fever? Families often wonder when students should stay home from school because of illness. For many families, deciding what to do can be even more difficult because of parental work responsibilities and the lack of childcare. As a general rule, consider the following:
  • If your student has had a fever, keep your student home for 24 hours after the temperature returns to normal (without the aid of fever-reducing medication).
  • If your student has vomited or has diarrhea, keep him/her home until 24 hours after the last episode.
  • If your student has a rash that may be related to a disease, such as chicken pox, etc., or if the cause of the rash is unknown, contact your family physician before sending the student to school.
  • If your student has a severe and persistent cough, he or she should be seen by your family physician before attending school.
  • Remember that students who have infectious illnesses can spread the disease if they’re in contact with others. The best defense is frequent hand washing, so practice good hand washing habits.
  • Remember to contact your school every day to report your student’s illness. Schools will do their best to provide you and your students with assistance to make up the work they’ve missed.
 
If your student becomes ill at school, he or she will be referred to the SBHC or health office staff for assessment, and if appropriate, the school nurse will call you regarding your child’s health care needs. All students are able to access general school nursing, without access to SBHC services.

District sexual health curriculum FLASH
FLASH is a great curriculum for teaching sexual health in our schools because it involves the family.

Role of parents and guardians: "Families have the important role of teaching values and expectations to their children. A key part of FLASH is its strong family involvement component. Each FLASH lesson contains a family homework activity so that parents and guardians can share their own values and expectations about these topics with their student. One of the goals of FLASH is to improve family communication."

There is homework involving discussion points for the student's family(support) each lesson. The expectation is that the student will discuss the lesson with a trusted adult(family) in their life including the values and beliefs of that trusted adult(family). It gives the student a chance to hear from several viewpoints and experiences. You are always welcome to view any lesson before or after it is taught. Flash is taught by the school nurses and trained staff.  You can view the FLASH website
