Illness and Communicable Disease

A child should not come to school (and will be sent home from school) if they have or have had :

  • a fever of 100 degrees F (orally) or higher in the past 24 hours WITHOUT fever-reducing medication
  • vomiting or diarrhea in the past 24 hours
  • an undiagnosed skin rash
  • untreated live head lice

Minneapolis Public Schools follow the guidelines developed by the epidemiologists at Hennepin County Community Health Department when deciding if a student should be sent home or kept home from school. Please notify the school if your child has a contagious condition like chicken pox, strep throat or head lice.
