24 Hour Rule
KISD Administrative Regulation FFAD is in place to ensure the health and safety of all students and states that students who exhibit vomiting, diarrhea, or a fever ≥ 100, must be excluded from school. If your student is ill, please keep them home. Please call the attendance office to report their absence/symptoms.
Re admittance is allowable as follows:
Free of fever (<100) for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Common trade names of products containing these medications include, but are not limited to Tylenol, Motrin and Advil. All aspirin-containing products should be avoided.
Food and liquids have been tolerated for at least 24 hours without vomiting and/or diarrhea, and without the use of medication to relieve symptoms.
Students diagnosed with a contagious illness that is being treated with prescription medication, must complete a minimum of 24 hours of the prescribed medication dosage prior to returning to school.
A DOCTOR'S NOTE DOES NOT SUPERSEDE THE "24 HOUR RULE"

Please remember that per Katy ISD, students are not allowed to carry medication on their person without documentation recorded in the Nurses Clinic.
Students carrying medication without documentation in clinic may be subject to disciplinary action.
