  • Vomiting or has vomited during the night
  • Rash or skin infection other than poison ivy
  • Diarrhea
  • Contagious diseases or infestations – including but not limited to scabies, impetigo, conjunctivitis, live lice and varicella.

Students should not return to school unless symptom free for more than 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications.
