Cold and Flu Season is here! Here's how to prevent getting sick:
Ø Wash your hands often with soap and water, if that's not available, use an alcohol based hand sanitizer. Rub, rub, and rub no matter which you use!!
Ø Stay away from people who are sick.
- Get a flu shot.
IF YOU DO BECOME SICK:
Ø Please stay home!!!!! Students cannot return to school until they are fever free for 24 hours without having taken medication (Tylenol/Motrin), and do not have vomiting/diarrhea.
Ø Have a plan to pick up/stay at home when kids get sick. Please make sure we have plenty of emergency phone numbers of people that can come to school to pick up your child if they become sick.
Ø Stock up on over the counter cold/cough/flu medications for home use, and don’t forget tissues AND CHAPSTICK!!! Be well!!!
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT IT IS A HEALTH RISK TO THE OTHER CHILDREN, IF YOU SEND YOUR CHILD IN TO SCHOOL SICK.
DOES YOUR CHILD HAVE ANY NEW ALLERGIES? If so, please let us know right away. Thank you!
PLEASE make sure an extra change of clothes are in your child’s bookbag daily.
Wishing you all a very Happy and Healthy New Year!
