It’s a decision every parent faces: whether or not to keep a sick child home from school. It often comes down to your child's ability to participate in school activities.  Having a sore throat, mild cough, or runny nose/congestion doesn't  mean a child should miss school.  Below you’ll find information on when you should keep your child home and when they can return to school.  If you’re not sure whether to send your child to school, please call your primary care provider or consult with your School Nurse.
