A Pollen Note From Nurse G
Hey there Wildcats, we have just completed week 3 staying healthy while working at home! Now it's time for a break, Spring Break that is! I hope the weather will be nice so everyone can enjoy some outside time, just remember all that pollen is still out there! Try not to rub your eyes or face while you are out there playing, it might rub the pollen into it and then your eyes might start to get really itchy and watery! If that happens just come inside and wash your hands with soap and water and then rinse your face off with only water. If your clothes are covered in it you may need to change clothes once you come inside too!
Here are is a good website to check the current pollen count:
If you would like a refresher, here is a great video from the CDC about good hand washing!
