Keep in mind that cough drops are considered a medication.  Please send a completed non-prescription medication form in order for us to dispense them to your child.  Please call Rachel at 402.556.1883 or email rhalonen@madonnaschool.org to obtain the form.  Thank you!

A MESSAGE FROM YOUR SCHOOL NURSE -

 

WHEN IS MY CHILD TOO SICK FOR SCHOOL?

Proper care in the early stages of an illness can reduce recovery time for the ill child and reduce the possibility of spreading the illness to others.  Proper diet, adequate rest, and good personal hygiene (especially frequent handwashing) can assist the body’s ability to fight infection.

The following are guidelines to assist you in deciding when your child should stay home from school:

Irritability, poor appetite, tiredness, achiness are vague symptoms.  Changes in a child’s normal behavior can often signal the beginning of an illness.

 

Fever of 100 degrees or higher.  Take your child’s temperature if he is complaining of feeling tired, headache, sore throat or stomach ache.  A child should be fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication before returning to school.

Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.  Keep your child at home for the duration of these symptoms.  No vomiting or diarrhea for the past 24 hours is recommended.  Be sure your child is able to tolerate food without difficulty before returning.

Nasal secretions and coughing/sneezing spread respiratory infections easily when these symptoms can’t be controlled.

Suspected communicable conditions such as undiagnosed rashes, pink eye, ringworm, or chickenpox.  A child must be sent home until identified symptoms are evaluated and conditions for return to school are provided by a health care provider.
