Illness


If you suspect your child has a communicable disease, contact your health care provider.

Your school nurse can help determine which diseases require exclusion from school or reporting to Yolo County Health and Human Services. School nurses work with the health department to monitor and manage communicable disease outbreaks and coordinate prevention programs.

Additionally, keep your child home with any of the following symptoms:

  • Pink eye: Your child should be kept at home until evaluated by a medical provider.
  • Rash: Do not send a child with a rash to school until a medical provider has said it is safe to do so – especially with additional symptoms like itching, fever, or ill appearance.
  • Fluid-filled blisters of unknown origin: It is important to have these evaluated by a medical provider due to the risk of serious infection.
