Flu & Cold Information

To Parent/Guardian,

To prevent the spreading of illness, here are some things you can do:

Teach your children healthy habits

  • Cough and sneeze into a sleeve or elbow, not hands.
  • Wash hands often with soap and water, especially after toileting and before eating. Use hand sanitizer if water is not available.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Tell the teacher if they feel sick.

Keep your child home if the are sick

  • Keep them home for at least 24 hours after they are fever free (without a fever reducing medication such as Tylenol or Advil).
  • Do not send a sick child to another group-such as sports or family with children.
  • Signs of flu are: fever with cough or sore throat.
  • Call your health care provider for advice if your child has flu symptoms.

Plan to get the Seasonal Flu Shot

  • Annual seasonal flu vaccines are recommended for everyone, especially children ages 6 months to 18 years, people over age 50 or those with underlying health conditions.
  • It is not too late to get the flu vaccine. Contact your health care provider or the local health department.

Plan now for the Flu Season

  • Make plans now for home care for children that become ill with the flu.
  • Update emergency contacts at school.

We will do all that we can to maintain a healthy environment at school. Please contact the school nurse, Wendy Marchinko, RN, BSN, NBCSN with any questions.
