Ask your principal or nurse about Bibb BOE sick child policies. Please do not send a sick child to school to see if they will feel better. Out of respect for others and for the health of your child, a sick child should stay at home! If your child has a fever, 100.4 or more, even if you give Tylenol or other medicine for a fever and it comes down, do not send your child to school that day. Do not send a child that has vomited (thrown up), has had diarrhea (runny stools), or has had a fever in the last 24 hours to school. If your child coughed all night and is miserable, do not send him/her to school until his/her coughing is under control.
See your healthcare provider to evaluate a
sick child and for any other health concerns.
