Flu season is upon us and we would like to remind you that a healthy diet, plenty of rest and practicing good hygiene is one way to keep your child healthy and in school.
Please keep your child home if running a temperature of 100.5 or higher, is coughing excessively, has significant nasal discharge or has vomited or had diarrhea during the night.
We continue to encourage good hand washing, coughing in the crook of your elbow and have also strategically placed Purell dispensers throughout our schools.
It is a fact that when a student doesn’t feel well they do not perform well in school. Keeping your child home when they are ill will ensure a faster recovery for your child and also help us reduce the spread of germs in our schools.
It is a CDC recommendation that the flu vaccine be administered to anyone over the age of 6 months.
