Keeping Kids Healthy During the School Year
Keep Sick Students at Home
Parents should not knowingly send a sick student to school — even on test day. Indeed, many schools require students to stay home until at least 24 hours after a fever has broken naturally. It may be frustrating having to miss a day or two of school, but that is better than spreading the illness to countless other children. Staying home from school can even aid the recovery process by ensuring that your child gets the rest her body needs to fight off infection.
