    Making the right call when your child is sick:
    School policy requires a child stay home is he or she:
         Has a fever or 100.0 degrees or higher
         Has been vomiting or has diarrhea
         Has symptoms that keep your child from participating in school, such as:  very tired, uncontrollable
                cough or sneeze, headache, body aches, earache, bad sore throat accompanied by other symptoms
                such as rash, headache or stomach ache. 
    We often have many children and adults with colds coming to school, and each one is passing their sickness to others.  Please help others from becoming sick by keeping your child home while the sickest.
