News from the Nurse

  • Establish a bedtime and wake up time to ensure adequate and consistent sleep.
  • Develop a routine for homework and after school activities.
  • Eat breakfast at home or at school every morning.
  • Help make appropriate clothing choices (for example, wear safe and comfortable shoes) and follow the dress code policy.
  • Advise your school of your child’s health concerns.
  • Wash hands before eating, after playing outside and after using the restroom. Handwashing is one of the best ways to prevent illness.
  • Talk to your children about covering their mouths with a tissue when they cough or sneeze. We reinforce coughing and sneezing into our elbows at school.
  • It is ok to send a small bottle of hand sanitizer with your child to keep in their backpacks or desk.

When should I keep my child home from school?

  • If your child has a temperature over 100 degrees, keep them home until they are fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication.
  • If you child is vomiting or having diarrhea they should remain home until they are symptom free for 24 hours without the use of medication.
  • If you do not think your child is sick, but may be acting a little “off”, please let the school nurse or teacher know, and we will monitor your child during the day.
  • As cold and flu season approaches, we will continue to reinforce these things with the students.
  • Colds and flu are typically spread from person to person from respiratory droplets. Viruses enter the body through the eyes, mouth or nose. A sneeze can spray thousands of particles into the air at 200 miles per hour, and they can travel about 3 feet. If children don’t cover their mouths and spray other children or an object, such as a door knob, when others touch it, they are more likely to get sick.
