News On Repeat

Nurse's Desk

Please keep your student home if they have experienced vomiting, diarrhea, or a fever (>100) in the last 24 hours.

Fall and winter illness is not uncommon in public environments such as schools. Most of the United States is currently experiencing high rates of respiratory illness, especially among children. This includes: respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), influenza viruses (flu A and B), SARS-CoV-2 (Covid), and rhinovirus/enterovirus (cold).

We have several processes in place to attempt to decrease transmission of illness in our schools. These include: frequent wiping of surfaces, air scrubber (purifier) in the Gym/Lunchroom, disinfectant sprays when children are out of room (specifically classrooms with a high percentage of students out with reported illness). The attendance secretaries and nurses work together to monitor reported illness and notify the health department when we meet certain thresholds.

Please continue to reinforce the importance of hand hygiene and covering their cough/sneeze with your student. Soap and water as well as hand sanitizers are located in multiple locations in every building and should be used before eating, after going outside, after using the restroom, etc.

Please reach out to your school nurse with any questions.
