Nurse's Notes

We are well into the cold and Flu season. We have had some cases of the Influenza (Flu) and strep throat so far but we're trying very hard to limit the spread of communicable diseases. Please look at the following to keep your child and our entire school community healthy:

Please remind your children to be diligent with Hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes with the elbow/sleeve, not touching the nose/mouth/eyes, etc. We do our best here at school to reinforce that practice but it is important to teach it at home as well. Please also refrain from sending children to school with a fever, excessive cough or runny nose. Our illness guidelines state to keep your child home until 24 hours fever, vomit and diarrhea free without medication.

However, if your child was diagnosed with the Flu (Influenza) they may be contagious for up to 7-10 days from diagnosis. It would be best to keep them home for a few more days to allow complete recovery. Most students who return to school too soon not only put others at risk but they are at risk for catching a secondary virus or infection due to decreased immunity.

Please contact our School Nurse, Mrs. Ferron (513-686-1743 or if you are not sure if you should send your child to school.

Here is a quick symptom guide to help you know when to see a physician for the flu!
