Keep Schools Safe, Stay Home When Sick

Check for wellness each day before coming to school

Eugene School District 4J is excited to welcome students back to school buildings full-time this fall.

To help everyone at school stay healthy, students and staff need to be healthy when they come to school. If your student is feeling unwell, or if they or anyone in their home has symptoms of COVID-19 or other communicable diseases, they need to stay at home.

Symptoms that should keep a student home include:

  • Fever of 100.4º or higher
  • Chills
  • Cough
  • Headache
  • Shortness of breath
  • Difficulty breathing
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting

If your student has any of these symptoms, please keep them at home and call your school’s attendance line.

If your student has been diagnosed or exposed to COVID-19, or is waiting for test results to check on COVID symptoms, please keep them home and notify your school.

If your student has a chronic health condition that could look like COVID symptoms—including conditions that cause a cough or shortness of breath, such as asthma or allergies—please talk to your school and document it in their health history, or they may be sent home from school if they are showing these symptoms.

Thank you for helping students and staff stay healthy in our school buildings
