From the Nurse...
**Any student that has a fever of 100.5, for any reason must stay home until fever free for 24 hours without fever reducing medication. this includes, but not limited to, Ibuprofen(Advil), acetaminofen(Tylenol), Nyquil,and most cold remedies(check the label).
Measles info, what to know:
Notification: Monroe County Health Dept. will notify the school district if there is a case of measles and will direct the schools about notifying parents.
It takes appox. 10 to 12 days after exposure for symptoms to appear, but a person can be contagious four days before and after a rash begins.
Symptoms include higher fever, 102 degrees or 103 degrees, and a lot of congestion and really irritated eyes, and then the rash would develop.
Students who have received two doses of the MMR - or measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine - are considered immune. The health department recommends that children who have only received one dose of the MMR vaccine get a second dose from their provider as soon as possible.
Parents who suspect their child is sick need to call their child's doctor or emergency department before seeking care in order to avoid exposing others. They also need to contact the Monroe County Health Department at (585) 753-5164.
A reminder about Pertussis (Whooping Cough): Pertussis is always present in the community and usually starts to increase about the same time as the flu. If your child develops a persistent cough that becomes worse over time, he/she should be evaluated by his/her physician so that the appropriate tests are performed and treatment is initiated.
Pertussis most often occurs in infants and younger children who frequently acquire the disease from older siblings, adolescents, and adults who have a mild disease. While Pertussis most frequently occurs in unvaccinated or under-vaccinated children, it also occurs in school-age children and adults who have had the recommended Pertussis immunizations.

Healthy Peer Relationships
PTSA is kicking off our Healthy Peer Relationships program at both high schools this month with a social media campaign highlighting the positive behaviors that promote healthy relationships. We are focusing on both friendships and dating relationships. Please share our posts: we are @WTHSPTSA on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram.
Here are a couple of tips we found to help kids navigate their relationships:
- Kids may not talk to their parents about problems with friends or dating partners because they don’t want us to have a negative opinion of the people they care about. To foster open communication, we should try not to put down their friends or dating partners, even when problems arise.
- When they share something, believe them, take them seriously, be supportive and understanding.
- Avoid telling them what to do.
You can learn more about the warning signs of unhealthy dating relationships at loveisrespect.org. Contact the Safe School Helpline (anonymous) if you have a concern about the health or safety of any student by dialing 1-800-418-6423 ext. 359.
We hope to help all our students develop respectful and positive relationships that will support them now and into their adult lives.
