Many students and parents/guardians are frequently concerned about when students should stay home or attend school. The following information is intended to help with this decision.
    General Guidelines:
    If the student:
    • Has a fever of 100° degrees or more, the student should stay home for 24 hours after the temperature returns to normal without fever reducing medication.
    • Has vomited or has had diarrhea, the student should stay home until 24 hours after the last episode.
    • Has a rash that may be disease related or the cause is unknown, check with health care provider before sending student to school.
    • Has an illness, keep the student home and call the school daily to report the symptoms for Influenza tracking and attendance purposes.

    If you have any questions, please call AFSA's health office at 651-209-3910 or your family health care provider.

  • Through Minnesota's statewide education COVID-19 testing program, AFSA is offering Vault tests for the 2021-2022 school year for students and staff. Students can take these tests home and return them to school so they can be shipped to the lab. We want to keep kids and staff healthy, safe and in their classrooms. If you would like a Vault test kit sent home with your student, please email our high school Covid Coordinator, Luba Vanyo, lvanyo@afsahighschool.com or our elementary Covid coordinator, Shelbi Pool, at spool@afsahighschool.com.
