Nurse’s News As we are in the depths of cold and flu season I have a few reminders: ● If your child has a temperature >100 degrees PLEASE DO NOT send them to school ● They must be fever free for 24 hrs before they can return to school. ● Please do not give them medicine to mask the fever, they will still be contagious ● Wash hands a lot….and then wash them some more!! Hand washing is the most effective way to prevent the spread of illness. ● Remind your children to Avoid touching their nose, mouth and eyes. ● Keep your environment clean. If someone has been sick be sure to sanitize door knobs, light switches and other frequently used objects/areas. ● Vitamin C is a great immune booster to take daily. ● Help your kids Take care of their body by helping them eat healthy and exercise often Thanks for all you do to keep your kids healthy!
