UPDATE 04-08-2024

The North Kingstown School Department has followed the Centers for Disease Control and the Rhode Island Department of Health guidelines throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The CDC and RIDOH recently updated their guidelines, and we will continue to follow their recommendations.  

According to this guidance:

  • Stay home from school and away from others when sick with respiratory virus symptoms (fever, chills, fatigue, cough, runny nose, headache, etc.) that another cause cannot better explain

  • Abstain from normal activities until remaining fever-free without fever-reducing medications for at least 24 hours and symptoms have improved.

  • While the new guidelines discontinue the requirements for a 5-day COVID-19 quarantine, the CDC suggests that anyone returning to normal activities, including school, after illness should consider taking added precautions like masking and physical distancing for five(5)


More information on covid management, treatment, and recommendations can be found below:

Your child needs to stay home when showing signs and symptoms of illness.

Please call the NKHS Sick Line at (401) 268-6239 when you anticipate your child being tardy or absent. If your child is out ill, it is helpful to know your child's symptoms to determine if an outbreak of one particular illness is occurring in the school.

We ask that students stay home for the following reasons:

  • Fever >100.4 F

  • Vomiting or diarrhea

  • Persistent cough

  • Excessive fatigue and lethargy due to their illness

  • Known contagious condition (i.e., strep throat, impetigo, pink eye) that has not been properly treated

  • Symptoms of the Covid-19 virus pending a negative Covid test

All medications, with the exception of Tylenol and ibuprofen, require a doctor's signed order form signed by the child’s physician and legal guardian. For permission to give your child Tylenol, Ibuprofen, or TUMS at school, your Aspen permissions must be updated every school year. Controlled substances (i.e. Adderall, Ritalin) must be brought to the clinic by the child’s parent or guardian in the original container and will be administered by the nurse per the prescribing doctor’s order. Please contact the nurse for more information.
