2. Cold and flu season will be here before we know it. The basics will help keep us healthy.

Wash your hands frequently.

Cover your nose and mouth with your elbow when coughing and or sneezing.

Get a good night sleep and eating healthy foods will provide your body with the stamina it needs to get through the day and fight off viruses.

If your child becomes ill and feels he or she can not participate in all of the school’s daily activities, keep them home. Your child should be fever free, less than 100.0 degrees, for 24 hours without fever reducing medicine before returning to school.

Discuss with your physician whether it is appropriate to get a flu shot. As always seek out your physician if you are not feeling well and symptoms persist.

Cereal Boxes Wanted

Please bring your empty cereal boxes for Mrs. Eberhard! You can drop them off in the office or send them with your student. She is collecting as many as she can for an upcoming project. Thank you!
