SICK-KID PROTOCOL:  Please keep your child home until they have been fever-free for 24+ hours. Please keep your child home until they have been “intestinally continent” (that’s a new one!)  and vomit free for 24+ hours.  If your child is sent to school, we will assume they are well enough to go outside and participate as usual in all school activities. When in doubt, keep ’em home another day.
