Sick Child?

In light of the current pandemic, it is vital that we all follow the districts’ guidelines on returning to school after illness. Please call the School Nurse at 874-8215 with any questions or information about your student’s illness.

  • If your child is sick with COVID-19 symptoms,  please call your healthcare provider.

    • If your healthcare provider does not believe your child has COVID-19, your child should stay home from school until they are feeling better and at least 24 hours have passed without a fever without taking fever-reducing medicine.

    • The Portland Public Schools, working with Greater Portland Health, can provide access to COVID-19 testing for families who may not otherwise have access.  Our school nurses will provide information about this if appropriate.

  • If your child is sick and has tested negative for COVID-19 or does not have any COVID-19 symptoms, they should stay home from school until they are feeling better and at least 24 hours have passed without a fever without taking fever reducing medicine and/or 24 hours have passed without vomiting or diarrhea.
