SVUSD Illness Policy: "When to Keep Your Child Home"

The District continues to appreciate our families’ efforts to screen their students for symptoms of COVID-19 at home each day before arriving on campus. This shared responsibility is critical to our ability to keep our schools open for in-person hybrid learning.

Students should follow the symptom decision tree symptom check that can be found in English and Spanish 

Children that come to the Health Office with symptoms of illnesses should go home whenever they are ill enough that it prevents them from participating comfortably in school activities. When students exhibit specific symptoms related to COVID-19, parents/guardians will be called to pick them up. 

Utilize the Symptoms Decision Tree to determine when to keep your child home. If your child exhibits any of the symptoms on the Decision Tree, please keep your child home and contact your school. When calling in an absence for your child provide your child’s symptoms. 

It is especially important to keep your child home when they exhibit two or more of the following symptoms: 

  • Fever of 100.4 and above, sore throat, congestion/runny nose, headache, nausea/vomiting/diarrhea, or fatigue/muscle or body aches.

    • Student may return to school 10 days after symptom onset and 24 hours fever free with symptoms improving or with a medical note/Return to School form completed by a medical professional and 24 hours fever free with symptoms improving.

  • One or more of the following symptoms: New cough, difficulty breathing, or loss of taste/smell. 

    • Student may return to school 10 days after symptom onset and 24 hours fever free with symptoms improving or with a medical note/Return to School form completed by a medical professional and 24 hours fever free with symptoms improving.
