    Keep your sick child home to protect the health and wellness of our students and staff!

    As students return to school for services or instruction, it is imperative that SUSD parents honor their responsibilty to check for symptoms daily, complete their health screen on ParentSquare, and keep children with symptoms or exposure to a positive case home. Keep your child's cohort safe!

    Please do not send your child to school if they are feeling sick.
    If your student has a fever of 100F or above, keep your student home until he/she is fever-free for 24 hours without the aid of any medication.

    As always, if you have any health concerns, please consult with your physician or health care provider.

Cold and Flu Season - Wash Those Hands! Stay Home If You're Feeling Sick!

  • Washing hands frequently and covering coughs and sneezes are effective ways of preventing the spread of viruses. The CDC (Center for Disease Control) also recommends that everyone 6 months & older get a flu vaccine each year.

    If your student is sick with a fever of 100F or above, please keep your student home until he / she is fever-free for 24 hours without the aid of any medication.

    Please do NOT send any medication (including cough drops) inside a student's backpack or lunch pack as this creates a risk to all students sharing medication or skipping doses of medication that they should have been taking.

    If your child needs to take medication during school hours, please drop off the medication and paperwork to the school office so staff can assist your child. Thank you for working together to keep our campuses safe and healthy.
