🤧 Cold & Flu Season is Here

Cold and flu season is upon us. To prevent widespread flu, GLOW will be following the recommendations and guidelines outlined by the CDC and New Hanover County Health Department:

Please do not send your child to school if she has or has had:

  • fever of 100 degrees or higher within the last 24 hours (must be fever-free without medication for 24 hours before returning to school)
  • Vomiting or diarrhea within the last 24 hours.
  • Symptoms that make it hard for your child to participate in school such as frequent coughing, headache, body aches, fatigue, earaches.
  • Strep Throat- until on antibiotics 24 hr.

Additionally, tips for staying healthy can be found in the image below!
