Attendance Policies

Health Guidelines for School Attendance

Wood Oaks strives to maintain a healthy and safe environment for both students and staff. We ask that you please keep your child home in any of the following cases*:

  • Fever of 100 degrees or higher. A student may return to school once he/she is fever free for 24 hours without the aid of fever-reducing medication.
  • Flu, severe cold/cough, or other infectious illness. A student may return to school once fever free for 24 hours. If the student has been given an antibiotic, they must have had 24 hours of a dosage before returning. Please report any infectious disease to the nurse’s office once diagnosed.

*This is not an exhaustive list of legitimate absence for medical reasons.

In the cases of more serious medical issues or absences of three days or greater, a medical clearance from the child’s doctor will be requested. If you have any questions, please contact your school nurse.
