Healthcare providers will often do a strep test for a sore throat.  This test can give a preliminary result in 10 minutes, but very often they send it for an overnight/24 hour test result.  Please keep your child home from school until the final results have come back.  In addition, if the child has strep throat, they must stay home until they have received 24 hours of antibiotics and they are feeling better.

Please do not send your child back to school after receiving a negative on the quick 10 minute test.  They can still have a positive test result with overnight/24 hour test.  If that is the case, they will expose their classmates to their illness.

Please follow these guidelines to keep our buildings healthy.

Overall, Mayfield came in fourth place in the entire competition. Thank you to all of the students, staff, and parents for their help and support.
