When to keep your child at home

How sick is too sick?  There are three main reasons to keep sick children at home:

  1. Your child doesn’t feel well enough to take part in normal activities.  For example, your child is overly tired, fussy or won’t stop crying.
  2. Your child needs more care than teachers and staff can give while still caring for the other children.
  3. The symptoms or illness  is listed on the chart (see below for print friendly charts in English or Spanish)
