Message from our Nurse
Health and learning go hand in hand. Children learn best when they are healthy, well rested, and have had nutritious meals and snacks. It is very important for your child to come to school every day, ready to learn. Please contact me in my office at 270-8133 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am happy to help you with any health or medical concerns.
This is a reminder that the Flu season is in full force. It's not too late to receive your Flu vaccine. Handwashing and coughing into your elbow are the two ways to help prevent the spread of the Flu.
WHEN YOUR CHILD IS SICK, please keep them home from school for the following symptoms and remain out until the symptoms have stopped for 24 hours (without the use of fever reducing medicine such as Tylenol or Motrin):
- Temperature of 100.0 degrees or higher
- Suspicious undiagnosed rash and/or itch
- Frequent, congested cough
- Yellow or green drainage from nose and/or eyes
A student who is seen by a physician and started on antibiotics for a bacterial infection should stay out of school for 24 hours after treatment has begun. Also, for attendance purposes: each day of absence covered by a doctor’s note is considered an excused absence.
