News You Can Use


We are beginning to see an increase in illness as we move deeper into the winter months. While there is no need for alarm, it bears reviewing some illness management guidelines for both home and school.

All family members should get a flu shot-it is NOT too late.

Children should remain home if they have a fever (100.4F or 38C above), vomiting, diarrhea or unable to manage profuse nasal drainage.

Frequent hand washing-hands should be washed often with soap and water, especially after coughing and sneezing.

Reinforce good respiratory etiquette-cover your nose and mouth when coughing/sneezing-practice with your children.

When notifying the school that your child is ill, please give us a reason/symptoms.

Students can return to school if they are fever free without medication(i.e. Tylenol  or Advil) and have been on antibiotic therapy (if indicated) for twenty-four hours, feeling well, eating, drinking and back to their regular routine.

Students should get at least 8-10 hours of rest each night.

Dress for cold weather –this means students should be wearing coats to and from school.

Speak to your school nurse if you have questions specific to your child.
