• How Sick Is Too Sick?

    Illness plays a significant role in early childhood absences. Help families understand when to send a child to school or keep her home and manage chronic conditions. When illness-related absences begin to add up, you can bring it to the attention of others, such as the school's family outreach or health staff members.

    Families often don’t understand when their child is too sick for school, and when they can safely send them in. This handout provides some clarity.
