Impetigo: 24 hours of treatment has been completed and sores are drying. 

Chicken Pox: Exclude from school until all sores are dry and crusted over, usually 6 days or longer.

Rash: If cause is not known, see a physician before sending to school. 

Ringworm: Exclude from school until treatment has begun; after return, lesions should be covered if possible, avoid close contact activities for 72 hours after starting treatment.


Teachers may send a student to the nurse’s office for a scalp assessment if warranted. If nits or lice are observed, the student’s guardian will be contacted and they will be allowed to determine if they would like to have the student released or remain in school for the duration of the school day. Treatment is expected prior to return to school the following day. If there are two or more cases of head lice in an elementary classroom that have been observed through the health office, notification will be sent to the guardians of all students in the classroom.
