Mrs. Forte's Newsletter
The best way to prevent Norovirus is with careful, frequent handwashing, staying home when ill and learning how it is spread. Please refer to the CDC website for more information http://www.cdc.gov/features/norovirus/
Less common symptoms:
- low-grade fever
- muscle aches
Help us prevent contagious illnesses in our school community.
Keep your child home for at least 24 hours after fever, diarrhea, and/or vomiting has stopped.
If vomiting, they need to be able to have eaten a solid diet for 24 hours before returning to school.
If your child has had a fever, they must wait for 24 hours without taking any fever reducing medication (for example, Tylenol or Ibuprofen, Motrin, etc) and be fever free for those 24 hours of not being on the medication, before returning to school.
