Kids Doctor Checkup

Health & Medication Information

Students may not come to school if they have a fever over 99.50. If they develop a fever or become sick at school they will be sent home. Children with a fever must remain home until the fever has been gone for at least 24 hours. That means that no child leaving school with a fever can return the next day. Also, fevers are always higher in the evening so no child who has a fever at bedtime can come to school the next day. LCS does not administer any medication, prescription or over the counter, to students.
