HEALTH NOTICE TO PARENTS



With concerns about Coronavirus and the Flu prominent in the community, we would like to remind families that, to prevent spread of contagious illness in the school, we recommend that your child

stay home from school if experiencing flu or cold symptoms. To decide whether or not to send

your child to school, please consider the following guidelines:

Consider keeping your child at home for an extra day of rest and observation if he or she has any

of the following symptoms:


 Very stuffy or runny nose and/or cough

 Mild sore throat (no fever, no known exposure to strep)

 Headache

 Mild stomach ache


Definitely keep your child at home for treatment and observation if he or she has any of these

symptoms:


 Fever (greater than 100 degrees by mount and your child may return to school

only after his or her temperature has been consistently below 100 degrees, by

mouth, for a minimum of 24 hours)

 Vomiting (even once)

 Diarrhea

 Chills

 General malaise or feelings of fatigue, discomfort, weakness or muscle aches

 Frequent congested (wet) or croupy cough

 Lots of nasal congestion with frequent blowing of nose


To help prevent the flu and other colds, teach your children good hygiene habits:

 Wash hands frequently

 Do not touch eyes, nose or mouth

 Cover mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing, use a paper tissue, throw it

away and then wash hands

 Avoid close contact with people who are sick.


Colds are the most contagious during the first 48 hours. A child who has a fever should remain at

home until "fever free" for a minimum of 24 hours. A child who has started antibiotics needs to be on the medication for 48 hours before considered non-contagious and able to return to school.

Often when a child awakens with vague complaints (the way colds and flu begin) it is wise to

observe your child at home for an hour or two before deciding whether or not to bring to school.

Your child should be physically able to participate in all school activities on return to school.

Keeping a sick child at home will minimize the spread of infections and viruses in the classroom.

Thank you in advance for helping make this year at school as healthy as possible.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to give us a call at

Sincerely,


Health Aide

Dear Parents,

In order to receive financial aid in the form or loans, grants, or scholarships, students need to complete the free application for student aid, also known as FAFSA. Even students who do not plan on needing financial aid should complete the application as it may give them access to scholarships they otherwise would not have access to. Please work together with your student to complete the application as soon as possible as FAFSA money is first come first served! If you need assistance in completing the application, please contact the counselors. Thank you!
