• Too sick for school?...

    The Woodstown-Pilesgrove Regional School District works with the Salem County Department of Health to help protect students from spreading communicable diseases. In order to protect other students and employees is it important that students are kept home when they are too sick for school.

     

    Symptoms that indicate a student is too sick to attend school

    If your child has any of the following symptoms, we recommend that you please keep him/her home, or make appropriate arrangements. It will become necessary to pick your child up from school as soon as possible if he/she demonstrates any of the following symptoms while attending school:

    • Temperature of 100.4’ or higher. Student may return when fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of fever reducing medication)

     

    • Vomiting - More than 2 times in 24 hours, a student should not return to school for 24 hours following the last episode.

     

    • Diarrhea - if stools are more frequent or 2 stools above normal frequency for that child, keep the child home for 24 hours after last stool.  

     

    • Other: see link below for specific illnesses and recommendations.

     

    The Salem County Department of health provides detailed guidelines for the control of outbreaks in school. Our recommendations are based off of these guidelines and can be found on the link below.
