If your child is ill before school, please do the following:

  • Take their temperature. (Every family needs a thermometer; they can be found at dollar stores.) Do not sent to school if their temperature is 100 degrees or more.
  • For sore throats, if you see a white spot on the back of their throat see a doctor. Please give acetaminophen (Tylenol). Store brand medications are the same thing and less expensive.
  • For sprains give ibuprofen (Motrin/Advil) and ice the area. If they can’t move the injured part, see a doctor or go to the emergency room. 
  • For colds/allergies give NON-DROWSY decongestants/allergy medications. 
  • For stomachache/ nausea give Tums.
  • For diarrhea give Lomotil/ Kaopectate/ Children’s Pepto-Bismol

For all above: If the child has a high fever of 101 or higher or the illness lasts more than a few days, see a doctor. 

NEVER give Aspirin to children.
