Notes From the Nurse

This is the time of year when we start to see an increase in student illness due to cold, flu,

strep, etc. Please keep the following guidelines in mind when deciding whether to send your child to school. This will help to control the spread of infectious diseases at school and allow your child to be available for learning.

  • Keep your child home if they have symptoms of the flu. That means a fever of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or greater, with cough and/or a sore throat. You should check your child for these symptoms each morning before sending to school. Other symptoms that may occur with flu include runny nose, headache, body aches, vomiting and diarrhea (in addition to fever and cough or sore throat).
  • Sick children should stay home for at least 24 hours after their fever is gone without use of fever reducing drugs like Tylenol or Motrin.
  • Teach your child to clean their hands often with soap and water or a hand sanitizer.
  • Teach your child to cover coughs and sneezes.
  • Vaccinate your child. The CDC recommends vaccinating all children against influenza. Check with your child’s health care provider for vaccine information and schedules.

Thank you for your attention to this important health concern. Please feel free to contact the

Health Office at 331-228-2304 with any questions or concerns.

Halloween at Ferson Creek

Consistent with previous years, students will be given time to put on their costumes just prior to the all-school parade as they are not allowed to wear their costumes to school. (The exception is early childhood classes who should wear costumes to school.) Also, students should refrain from wearing costumes that depict gore, violence, or inappropriate imagery. Any masks that completely cover a child's face should not be worn, and props that depict weapons are not allowed.
