When Should My Student Remain at Home?

 The following link will provide you with information regarding the immunizations your child will need in order to attend school.

Immunization Requirements

The following links will take you to the DHEC exclusion lists that will give you information regarding when your child needs to remain home from school due to illness.  There are two different exclusion lists.  One list is for students in grades 1 - 12.  The other list is for students in the Preschool Program, Kindergarten or are Medically Fragile.  The Parent Brochures are a brief explanation of when your student should remain at home due to illness.  The Exclusion Lists are specific by illness and outline when the student may return to school and whether or not they will need a note from their health care provider stating they are ready to return to school.  In addition to the exclusion list students with a temperature of 101 or greater must remain home until there temperature has been under 101 for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication.  Students with vomiting must remain at home until they have been symptom free for 12 hours and been able to tolerate a meal.  Students who have had a dental procedure requiring sedation and/or anesthetic should not return to school until the anesthetic has completely worn off and the student has full feeling returned to their mouth and tongue.  Students are at a higher risk for injuring their mouth while it is numb and their pain level cannot be adequately guaged.  Students who have had a tooth extracted must also remain at home until they are no longer having active bleeding. If you have any questions feel free to contact your school nurse.
