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
