sickParents and Guardians, keep your student AT HOME if they have
ANY of the following symptoms:


• Fever greater than 99.9°F -- it doesn't matter if it comes down using fever-reducing medicines such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen. Controlling the fever does not control the infection!
• Vomiting more than once
• Diarrhea

Colds and influenza are the most contagious during the first 48 hours and we ask that you please keep your student AT HOME if they are not feeling well. Thank you for helping keep our students healthy and in school!

The Okaloosa County School District wants to share important resources regarding
the Coronavirus and information regarding keeping children healthy.Below you will find links for OCSD Quarantine Update and hand washing tip.
