Students Who Are At Home Sick and/or Sent Home

Edison School District follows CDC recommendations: if your student is home with symptoms, or sent home because of symptoms of illness that are deemed possibly infectious, he/she/they are expected to remain out of school until their symptoms HAVE IMPROVED and they are fever free for 24 hours without taking medications such as Tylenol or Advil to keep body temperature low.  If your child has symptoms of:

  • Influenza (flu)
  • Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV)
  • Strep  Throat
  • Covid-19 -'s%20New%20%26%20Updated&text=CDC&text=Given%20new%20evidence%20on%20the,schools%2C%20regardless%20of%20vaccination%20status.

and/or other viral illnesses, please have your child seen by their doctor to help prevent further debilitating illness and the spread of their illness to others.  


Please email these results to the health office and relay how your student's symptoms have improved before sending.  If your student has a cough that disrupts their own ability to do classwork and disrupts the curriculum for surrounding students and teachers, your child needs to stay home until it is improved. Please seek guidance from their pediatrician to help this happen and a note from the doctor with a return date. *Please note, school district protocol supersedes  the doctors note to return to school if your student has acute symptoms that are not improved.
