In questionable cases, a statement from the physician may be requested by the school nurse. 

Students returning after a contagious disease may be admitted when free of symptoms (recommended temperature normal for 24 hours with no fever-reducing medication) and following the most current CDC guidelines. 

Additional resources include the Public Health Department and the Health Services Coordinator. For complete infection control guidelines, contact the School Nurse.
