Had never heard of PFAPA (periodic fever sydrome) before, but now I have two with it. One never really has many flares per mom- so missing school shouldn't be an issue. The other student is a new KGer and mom says he will miss 3-4 days a month due to this "probably."
Does anyone have a student with this who is on a 504?

I have 1 student diagnosed with it - we did not do a 504. We did have a plan of care & I had documentation from the doctors office of diagnosis - if the student came down with a fever at school, I would call the parent & let her know the symptoms - parent made the decision whether to pick student up or if I was just to administer Motrin, allow to rest for a bit and send her back to class - most of the time it was just administer motrin and send her back to class. If I sent her home it was because she had other symptoms - sore throat, cough etc.
