Guidelines for Keeping Sick Child Home from School
Fever-A child should remain at home with a fever greater than 100 degrees F.  He/she can return to school after they have been fever free for  at least 24 hours with no medication.

Diarrhea/vomiting-Children should stay home until they are symptom free for 24 hours.

Colds-Consider keeping your child home if they are complaining of nasal congestion,or they are experiencing coughing. A continuous green discharge from the nose could be an infection.  Consider having your child seen by your healthcare provider.

It can be difficult for a sick child to learn effectively and may be unable to participate in classes in meaningful ways. Keeping a sick child at home helps prevent the spread of illness in the school community and allows the child an opportunity to rest and recover.
Please send in a copy of your child's annual physical as they have them. Most often this will not only include annual physical checklists but also an updated immunization record.  Providing us with this information will allow us to have the most recent information for your child's school health record.  

Updated physicals are mandated to participate in sports at Leicester Middle School and Leicester High School. Physicals are good for thirteen months per the MIAA guidelines. 
7th Graders
Student health records are audited when they are in the 7th grade.  Massachusetts requires the following immunizations by the beginning of grade 7:
2 doses Varicella (or documented case of chicken pox)
2 doses MMR
​1 Tdap (tetnus booster)

If you haven't already done so, please send in a copy of your child's most recent physical and immunization record.
