  • Too sick to attend school?

    As the flu season approaches this is a perfect time to remind you that sometimes your child may be too sick to attend school.  Most Marist School students are reluctant to stay home when they are ill; they worry about missing class and getting behind on tests and assignments.  Students often persuade their parents that they are well enough to “get through the day” when in fact they should be at home.  Remaining at home will not only allow an ill student to recover faster but it will minimize the chance of a student spreading their illness to others.  Marist follows the school attendance guidelines suggested by Children’s Health Care of Atlanta.  They are as follows.

    Students should stay home if they…
    • have a fever higher than 100.4 (when not taking fever reducing medications such as Tylenol or Motrin)
    • have vomited more than once
    • have diarrhea
    • have the flu (fever with any of the following…aches, chills, respiratory congestion, sore throat)
    • have a persistent and frequent cough
    • have constant pain (ear ache, stomach ache, recent injury, etc.) that impacts their ability to concentrate
    • have lice that have not been treated
    • have strep throat and have not been on antibiotics for 24 hours
    • have a spreading rash
