    Temperature at school

    • A child with a temperature of 100 or above will be sent home and should not return to school until temperature is normal for 24 hours without Tylenol or other fever reducing medication.

    • Lake County School District does not give aspirin or Tylenol for any reason unless ordered by a doctor.

    • If a temperature is 103.8 or above and a parent cannot be reached, the school will call 911 (at your expense) for medical attention for your child.  A temperature of this degree can cause seizures in some children and medical attention is essential.

    • If there are concerns or questions regarding medications administration in school, please contact the Health Educators Office at 742-6954.

    • If your child is not able to attend school due to illness, please send in a written note with your child upon returning to school.  The note should briefly explain reason for absence.
