It is always a tough call for us parents! Your child has been diagnosed with the flu, impetigo, strep, or some other contagious illness. The big question is: when can they go back?
We don’t want our kiddos missing too much school, but we don’t want them to infect other children, or just be miserable all day! So, here are some general guidelines for when a child can go back to school for several common illnesses:
Keep in mind, these are very general guidelines! If your child is not feeling well, we recommend taking them to see their pediatrician. Depending on the severity and their pediatrician’s judgment, they might suggest your child stay home longer. When your child does go back to school, make sure their teacher and the school nurse has your contact information.
