Teachers should be familiar with the signs, symptoms, and control measures of common acute childhood illnesses. Choose one of the following situations and discuss in detail what a teacher should do. Include what illness(es) the sign or symptom could be revealing or your next steps in controlling the situation. Your final step in evaluating the situation will always be to call the school health professional.
