too sick for school

Is My Child Too Sick To Go To School? A Guide for Parents

APPEARANCE/ BEHAVIOR– unusually tired, pale, no appetite, hard to wake, or confused.

EYES– If there is drainage, vision change, and/or redness of the eyelid, itching, pain or sensitivity to light. This may be a sign of “pink eye” (conjunctivitis) and the student should be checked by a health care provider.

FEVER– temperature of 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees C) or higher. Students need to be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school WITHOUT medications to reduce the fever.

BAD COLD AND/OR COUGH – Students need to be able to cover their cough to be at school. If a cough or cold persists for more than 2 weeks, the student may need to be seen by a health care provider.

DIARRHEA– 2 or more watery stools in 24 hours, especially if the student acts or looks ill. Students should stay home for 24 hours after the last watery stool.

VOMITING– vomiting 2 or more times in 24 hours. Student should stay home for 24 hours after the last time they vomited.

RASH– Bothersome body rash, especially with fever or itching. Some rashes may spread to others and should be checked by a health care provider.

INJURY/SURGERY – if students are unable to concentrate due to pain or pain medication, they should stay home. Please have your health care provider contact the school nurse to help your child safely return to school. Letting the school nurse know in advance of any planned surgery will be helpful.

STILL HAVE QUESTIONS about whether or not your student is healthy enough to come to school? Contact the school nurse or your child’s health care provider.


Keeping ill students at home, encouraging frequent hand washing, and covering coughs protects everyone, including those with fragile immune systems.

Students are expected to participate in all parts of the school day including recess or PE. If your doctor has restricted activity please send a doctor’s note, for example: “No contact sports x 1 week.”

Thank you for your support to keep students safe & healthy.

NEW CELL PHONE EXPECTATIONS

Please take a moment to review the attached letter (Click Here for Expectations) to learn more about our philosophy and approach to dealing with Cell Phone Use by Students on our campus.  These policy changes have been under review and re-construction for the past two years.  We recently surveyed classroom teachers about the impact of distractions during instruction and more than 70 percent indicated cell phone use during class is a problem too frequently.  Effective Oct 1, students will be expected to silence their phones and store them in their backpacks or in a classroom caddie system as directed by the classroom teacher.  We are discouraging students from keeping phones on their person during instructional time to avoid the distraction of text messages, social media and other distractions.  Students can still use their cell phones for educational engagement under the direction of their classroom teacher.  Systems will vary based upon course content, grade level and the established expectations of the classroom teacher.  Consequences for not following the policy are clearly stated and will be shared with students prior to the Oct 1 effective date.  We will meet with kids during an extended 5th period later this month to ensure we all understand.  As noted in the letter linked above, we have a "Plan, not a Ban" at AHS.  Some schools have elected full bans on cell phones, but we do not believe this serves our students best in their preparation for life beyond AHS.  Nearly 97% of our teachers believe we share a responsibility as an educational institution to teach our kids proper cell phone use as they work toward career readiness.  It's all about proper time, place and application.  Thus, we will do all we can to help them mature, learn and grow into responsible, prepared adults.  Lastly, we want to support every classroom environment by increasing student engagement, improving interpersonal communication and building more opportunity for distraction-free learning periods for our kids.  Please support our efforts and review the policy expectations with your student.   

attendance message

Attending school every day can help prepare your teen for the workforce
Attendance is an important life skill that will help your child graduate and keep a job. Just think if you didn’t attend your job each day how this would impact your job? The same is true for your child and school. Please make school attendance a priority. It can help them now and into the future!

CHARACTER STRONG

Each month moving forward we will communicate a character trait we hope to instill in Every Eagle. For the Month of December, our character trait is Selflessness.

A Note to Parents

Arlington High School creates a safe and caring environment for students

The teachers and staff at Arlington High School want to make sure our school is a safe and caring place for your child. As stated in the school board policies and procedures and in our family handbook, harassment, intimidation and bullying will not be tolerated in our school. Our teachers and staff go through training at the beginning of the year to recognize the signs of harassment, intimidation and bullying and report such behavior accordingly.

If a student feels harassed or threatened in some way, they can make a complaint at the school. Informal reports may also be made to any staff member. Such complaints will be appropriately investigated and consistently handled. Students may also submit a report using the SafeSchools Tip Line that’s available on the front page of our school’s website.

Your child’s safety and well being is a priority for us. We want them to thrive in a positive environment that promotes learning. Please call our main office if you have any questions.
