Guidelines for Sick Kids

In order to provide a healthy environment, Collinsville Public Schools has established the following guidelines. These are for your child’s protection, as well as the protection of other children in the classroom. If your child exhibits any symptoms from the following contagious conditions, please keep him/her at home. If a child is brought to school and begins to show signs of any of these contagious conditions, a parent or guardian will be called to come pick up the child.

Please note that we understand your dedication to your job and we understand your students’ dedication to school, however, when you send your child to school sick that means everyone around them is at risk for coming into contact with their germs, virus and/or contagious disease.

CURRENT PHONE NUMBERS: If your child gets sick at school, we will call you. If you cannot be reached, someone on your emergency list will be called. Please be sure that all phone numbers are current.

Students will be sent home for any of the following conditions, unless a health professional determines the child’s condition does not require exclusion:
• Appears to be severely ill. (i.e. pale, sweaty, lethargic, excessive pain in an area of their body.)
• Temperature of 100° Fahrenheit or higher (out for one full calendar day after temp is normal without fever reducing medication.)
Active infectious drainage from any part on their body (i.e. wounds, spider bites, ears, eyes, etc.) Wound must be covered and not draining before returning to school.
• Vomiting/Diarrhea (out for one full calendar day after vomiting/diarrhea has stopped.)
• Abdominal pain that continues for more than 2 hours.
Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye): may return after treatment has started and is able to participate in activities. Other forms do not need to be excluded. (such as those caused by allergies.)
• Impetigo: Exclude for one full calendar day after treatment has begun.
Pediculosis (Head Lice): see lice policy.
• Rash: Exclude for one full calendar day after treatment has begun, or until a medical professional has determined that it is not contagious.
• Scabies: excluded for one full calendar day after treatment is begun.
• Streptococcal pharyngitis (Strep Throat): excluded one full calendar day after treatment has begun and fever free for one full calendar day without the use of fever reducing medications.

In addition, you will be called if your child has an illness that prevents them from participating comfortably in activities as determined by staff, or if they require more care than the staff can give, which may result in compromising care for other children.
