When to Stay Home

When to Stay Home From School
If you think that your child has an illness that can be spread to others, please keep him or her home from school or childcare.  Contact your healthcare provider or clinic if you think medical attention is needed.

Dear Parents:

This brochure lists the illnesses for which a child must be kept out of school or childcare.  It tells you if your child needs a doctor's note or medical treatment to come back to school or childcare after certain illnesses.  If you have any questions about the School and Childcare Exclusion List, please contact your child's school, childcare or your local health department.
