I am always available to discuss any medical concerns or answer any questions you have regarding your child. Feel free call me or stop in my office.
Just a few tips to help you make the decision whether to keep your child home:
If your child had a fever, he/she needs to be fever-free for 24 hours without the use of medication before returning.
If your child was placed on an antibiotic, he/she needs to be on the medication for 24 hours before returning.
If your child had diarrhea or vomiting, he/she needs to be symptom-free for 24 hours before returning.
If your child has a cold, cough or is not feeling well in any other way, he/she would probably benefit from an extra day of rest.
Over the counter medications to be given in school requires a written note from the physician and the parent.
Don’t forget to call my office to report your child’s absence.
I look forward to working with you to make this a healthy year for your child.
