Health Office Guidelines

The Health Office is open from 10-2 Mondays-Thursdays and ALL day on Fridays. We are lucky to have school nurse Paula Gutzmer here on Fridays and lucky to have our health technician Whitney Andreasen here every day.

Just a few reminders regarding student health. Please do not send ill children to school. Not only do they risk the chance of catching other germs but they can spread their illness to others. Please call the attendance line at (720) 424-5312 to report their absence.

Use these guidelines to determine if your child should stay home:

  • Persistent and uncontrollable cough
    Fever of 100.0 degrees or higher
    Persistent headache
    Vomiting and/or diarrhea, ongoing stomach pain
    Sore throat lasting more than 3 days
    Unexplained rashes
    Any of the above with general fatigue or sleepiness

Please take your child to their health care provider if they have any of the following:

  • Ongoing respiratory issues persistent cough, chest tightness or pain
  • Unexplained fever of over 100.5 degrees
  • Sore throat lasting more than 3 days
  • Red, itchy or burning eyes with or without discharge
