School Nurse Update

Daily Student Health Checks

Parents/Guardians are reminded that prior to each school day, they should conduct a health check of their child(ren), which includes taking a temperature.   Any child with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or over should be kept home from school.

If a child displays any of these symptoms, the parent/guardian will be asked to keep the child home until cleared by a primary care physician or is symptom-free and fever-free without fever reducing medication for 72 hours.

  • fever (100.4)
  • cough
  • shortness of breath
  • difficulty breathing
  • loss of taste and/or smell

If a child displays two or more of these symptoms, with or without a fever, the parent/guardian will be asked to keep the child home until cleared by a primary care physician or is symptom-free and fever-free without fever reducing medication for 72 hours.

  • fever (100.4)
  • cough
  • shortness of breath
  • difficulty breathing
  • loss of taste and/or smell
  • sore throat
  • runny nose/congestion
  • chills
  • diarrhea
  • nausea/vomiting
  • headache, especially with onset of fever
  • muscle pain

Since many of these symptoms are the same symptoms for common ailments such as strep throat, cold/flu, seasonal allergies, and asthma, we recommend that parents/guardians consult with their primary care physicians since the child may need medical attention.    

Let the School Nurse Know

If your child or member of the household has tested positive for COVID-19 or is being tested for COVID-19, let the school nurse know.   If your child has been ordered to quarantine by the Pennsylvania Department of Health or a medical professional, let the nurse know.

Visits to the Health Office

Visits to the Health Office will be limited to illness or routine, physician-prescribed medication distribution.
