Letter from the School Nurse

Hey JHCS family!!

I’m so excited to be back for another great school year. We are off to a great start, health wise this school year. I just wanted to reach out and give some tips on how to hopefully stay healthy through the winter, not to mention the pandemic. The following came from county officials:

  • Staying home when you are not feeling well.

  • Quarantining if you have been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19. For those who are fully vaccinated or have had a previous COVID-19 infection, quarantining is only necessary after exposure if experiencing symptoms.

  • Recommending face masks be worn when indoors.

  • Receiving COVID-19 vaccines for all eligible individuals at no cost and facilitating drive-thru vaccine clinics for people who cannot come to a vaccine site.

  • Healthy living and eating habits to boost the immune system and overall health, including outdoor activity, sunshine, taking vitamins, fresh air, and plenty of sleep.

  • Frequent hand washing and avoiding touching your face.

All excellent advice. Here are a couple of my own, personal tips.

  • Wash your kids' personal belongings often. Masks are either daily or weekly, depending on how your kids “love” them. Water bottles, lunch boxes, and jackets should be washed weekly. Backpacks can be washed monthly.

  • Keep yourself hydrated! Especially when you’re starting to get sick. Drink lots of fluids, and don’t be afraid to use electrolyte drinks (ie powerade and gatorade).

When all is said and done, what matters most is you take care of yourself. Having a cleaning schedule, cleaning EVERYTHING helps a lot too.

Don’t be afraid to reach out to me with any questions, comments, or anything I can do. I’m happy to give advice, help wherever.

Thank you so much for all you do and all your hard dedication. Parent support is vital in the education of our students.
