    When to Keep Your Child at Home
    Rashes – Keep your student home if he or she has a new skin rash that has not been evaluated by a doctor, including impetigo and scabies.  Always call your doctor about unknown skin rashes to determine the cause and if they are contagious.  Rashes are often part of an illness that is easily spread to others.
    Fever – Keep your student home if they have a fever over 100 degrees. Do not send your child to PRYAF while on fever-reducing medicine. The student may return to school when he/she is fever free for 24 hours.  Fever is a sign of infection that can be transmitted to someone else.
    Vomiting or Diarrhea – Please keep your child home for 24 hours after the last episode of diarrhea or vomiting.  Vomiting and diarrhea are often caused by an illness that can be transmitted to someone else.
    Nose Drainage – Please keep your child home if he or she is experiencing yellow or green color nasal drainage that lasts longer than 10 days or accompanied by a fever. Regular colds often have yellow or green drainage. If they last longer than 10 days, this could be a different illness and it is recommended that your child see his or her doctor.
    Behavior – Please keep your child home if he or she has significant changes in behavior.  Some examples include irritability, tired, sore throat, earache, excessive coughing.  Cold and flu can easily be passed to others, especially in the first few days, when accompanied by the changes in behavior listed above.
    Please Note – If any of these symptoms are recognized by a PRYAF staff member or PRYAF instructor, a parent/guardian will be called to have them picked up from PRYAF and can return with a doctor’s note that states that the child’s symptoms are not contagious.
