47a. Other Health Considerations
Other Health Considerations
If a student has a fever (Emporia nursing standard is 100 degrees or greater), his/her temperature must be normal for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication (i.e. Tylenol, Ibuprofen) before returning to school. Typically, if a student is vomiting or has diarrhea, they need to stay home until it has been 24 hours since those symptoms have passed. At times there are exceptions to this rule. Please reach out to your health office staff to assess special circumstances. The parent of a child who has head lice will be contacted and given evidence-based treatment options.
