School Health Services Guidelines for Exclusion
Listed below are Franklin County Schools’ guidelines outlining when to keep your student at home due to illness. Please note, the list does not include every illness and serves as a guideline for parents and school staff on managing the most common illnesses seen in school age children. Families should follow the guidance of their health care provider for all illnesses. A general rule for all students – if your student is prescribed antibiotics, they should stay at home for at least 24 hours after starting the medication and may need additional time at home based on how they are feeling.
