We applaud your efforts to get your children to school as many days as possible, but there will be days that isn't a good idea for both the health of your child and the other students.
LVISD likes their students to stay home until they have had 24 hours free of vomiting or fever (not needing medicine to bring the fever down.) This is our best defense against contagious illnesses running all through our school.
Our guidelines for being sent home or for staying home have been
referred to as The 5 B's: The names aren't elegant but the kids like them...
Baking - Having a temperature over 100 degrees.
Bleeding - Needing stitches
Barfing - Vomiting
Broken - Can't walk safely, even with crutches
Bugs - Live lice
