Nurse Hubert's Newsletter, November 2021
Happy Late Fall Everyone,
Parkway will be having several COVID vaccination clinics for students ages 5-12, everyone has been sent the link by Parkway but here it is just in case you missed it.
I hope you are all able to get your students vaccinated. Please hold on to those Vaccine cards. I will be sending out a link within the next week or so where you can go directly to a site to download your child’s COVID vaccine information for Parkway.
In health news, we are seeing a lot of various viral illnesses currently in the community. These are very hard to distinguish from COVID, Strep, and Influenza. Please remember to keep in touch with your pediatrician when your child has symptoms of a fever, sore throat, headache, muscle aches, rashes, cough, or stomachache. They are the ones who know your child best and most, if not all, have same-day appointments that you can get your child into that day. Call early in the morning if your child has developed symptoms overnight. Your child’s doctor wants to know when your child is sick. They are the first line of care for your child.
Please remember to send your child in with a clean mask every day. Wearing a dirty mask for days in a row is like breathing through a dirty air filter. It can make your child sick or prevent them from getting better after being sick. You wouldn’t let them wear dirty underwear every day, would you?
Did you know that if your child has been diagnosed with COVID, Strep or Influenza, or other bacterial or viral illnesses, you should get your child a new toothbrush after they have been started on antibiotics after 24 hours? If your child wears any retainers or has removable dental appliances they should be brushed thoroughly and soaked in mouthwash daily.
Check with your child’s dentist or orthodontist for specific instructions on how to clean oral appliances after an illness.
Burrrr, it’s been cold outside lately. Please remember to send your student in with a warm jacket or coat every day as well as a hat and gloves. I have a very limited supply of these which I have to wash between student use. We will be going outside unless it is raining or in a danger zone for wind chill factors.
I hope you are all able to enjoy that Thanksgiving break coming up and have memorable times with your family and friends. If you are traveling out of town please be safe.
Here is to a healthy remainder of 2021!
