FEVER: 100 degrees or higher

Fever is a sign of illness.  A child with a temperature of 100 degrees or higher should NOT attend school.  Your child should be fever free (without the aid of Tylenol or Motrin) for 24 hours before returning to school.



 A persistent, frequent cough and/or constant nasal drainage may affect your child's performance at school, and he/she may be more comfortable at home.



A child that has a rash that is draining, has open areas or is causing the child to itch excessively should not attend school.  A rash accompanied with other symptoms such as fever, sore throat, irritability, vomiting, etc. should not attend school and should be seen by the Doctor for an evaluation. 



A child who has vomited should wait 24 hours and be able to retain solid foods before returning to school.  A child who is having frequent diarrhea should not attend school.  If there is cramping/abdominal pain with diarrhea it is best to keep the child home where they can access a bathroom quickly and easily. 



A child who wakes up with their eyes crusty or matted together may have "pink eye" or conjunctivitis.  Other symptoms are redness of the eye, gritty feeling in the eyes, itching, pain, and/or discharge of the eye.  Only a Doctor can determine if your child has conjunctivitis. It is highly contagious and we need to keep other students from being exposed.  Your child needs to stay home on medication for 24 hours before returning to school and must have a release from Doctor stating when they are able to return.

Meet the Nurse


I have been a Licensed Practical Nurse since 1995. I started working with the Bulloch County BOE as a nurse in 2010.  Prior to that, I worked for 14 years with a local family practice Doctor.

I love helping our fabulous kids at Sallie.

They keep me very busy!

I am married with 3 children of my own. We live in Statesboro with

our 2 rescue dogs and 1 rescue cat

The nurse’s office will gladly accept

donations of tissues, zip loc bags, non-latex band aids, and hand sanitizer.

If you have a child that has outgrown any gently used clothes that you would like to donate, it would be greatly appreciated. We try to keep some on hand in case of accidents or spills.
