Keeping Kids Healthy!

With school back in session and the weather getting cooler, the opportunity for germs to spread and cause illness is increasing.  There are a number of things parents can do to help keep their children healthy and in school:

·         Remind your children to frequently wash their hands; before they eat, after they have recess and after they use the bathroom.  Proper hand washing is the single most important behavior in preventing the transmission of many infectious diseases

·         Avoid close contact  with children and adults who are showing signs of illness

·         Check with your health care practitioner about immunizations for those diseases that can be prevented with vaccination ie: Influenza and Chicken Pox

·         Remind your student to cough into his elbow or shoulder

In addition, to help keep our school community healthy please keep your student home if:

·         S/He has a fever of 100 degrees or over

·         S/He appears ill and you suspect it may interfere with his ability to be an active learner ie: s/he is coughing repeatedly

·         S/He has nausea and vomiting, cramping or diarrhea

If you have questions or concerns about school health, please feel free to contact our school nurse, Shannon McNamee RN, at 422-7013
