With spring and summer come new health issues, many of which are related to spending more time outdoors. In the Health Office I have Caladryl lotion for those itchy poison ivy rashes and insect bites. For itchy allergy eyes I can give cool compresses. To the students who may have been out in the sun too long or not used enough sunscreen, I can also help with cool compresses for their sunburned skin. The Health Office also has lotion for dry skin and Vaseline for chapped lips. Please try to help lessen the visits your child might make to the Health Office by treating as many of these issues before school. We encourage parents to make applying sunscreen and/or insect repellent a part of their morning routine.
Adequate hydration is also an important issue any time of year. We encourage you to send a water bottle or an adequate supply of other healthy liquids to school for kids to drink as desired. Proper hydration can prevent or reduce the occurrences of many health problems like nosebleeds, headaches, constipation, fevers and bladder infections.
If your child is one who tends to get wet when playing outdoors, perhaps it would be a good idea to send spare pair of socks and/or pants in his/her backpack to be changed into as needed.
Thank you and enjoy the warm weather.
