Dear Richardson Parents/Guardians

Spring is trying to get here and along with that comes the Allergies. Sneezing, wheezing, runny/stuffy nose, itchy/watery eyes!!

The trees are starting to bud and the pollen will fly. Once it finally gets warm it will be bursting all at once.

Some tips to make the season easier for your child:

• Start any antihistamines and nasal sprays early. Keep going with them until the season is over

• Give the antihistamine at night before bed so they wake up with fewer symptoms/tiredness for the school day

• Have your child shower/wash their hair at night to get the pollen off before bed

• Keep the windows closed to keep pollen out of the house

• Always check with your child’s physician for any questions or concerns

COVID is still a thing-IF your child tests positive you must fill out the student response form so it can be reported to the district and state.

The stomach bug is still happening: if your child is sick please keep them home. We strive to keep our kids safe and healthy in school.

Symptoms may include but are not limited to:

- Runny/stuffy nose

- Fever

- Body aches and/or Ear aches

- Stomach aches, pains and/or vomiting

-Coughing due to illness

A refresher on our guidelines:

-If your child has any symptoms of illness or is sent home from school they must be kept home at least 24 hours AND/OR until they are symptom-free without meds for 24 hours.

If your child has any medications in our office they will need to be picked up in person at the end of the school year. You will get a letter with additional information this month.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns OR my office number is 651.748.6915.

Thank you so much for your time and cooperation.

Nurse Konnie
