Message from the Nurse
The winter months are upon us and with that comes cold and flu season. In order to prevent the spread of illness in our school, I would like to review the health policies regarding communicable diseases and illness.
- Fever: Your child should stay home for full 24 hours after the fever has resolved and no fever reducing medication has been given in that 24-hour span of time.
- Diarrhea: Your child should stay home until there is no more diarrhea for 24 hours.
- Vomiting: Your child should stay home until vomiting has stopped for 24 hours.
- Cold Symptoms: Frequent cough, runny nose, sneezing (not necessarily associated with a fever)-use best judgement when sending your child to school.
- Contagious illnesses: (strep throat, conjunctivitis) Your child needs to have taken at least 24 hours of prescribed medication before coming back to school.
- COVID symptoms: please use an at home test. If positive, please contact the health office for guidance for return to school.
Ways to reduce spread of illness:
- Stay up to date on vaccinations.
- Frequent and thorough hand washing
- Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available
- Cover coughs and sneezes by coughing or sneezing into your elbow or a tissue if available
- Wear a mask
- Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth
- Stay home if you are ill
- Avoid people who are ill
- Avoid crowded places
We could always use clothing donations! The following items are always welcome and appreciated:
- Pants---sweatpants or elastic waist pants are preferred because they can fit many sizes and body types.
- New unused underwear (especially boys) any sizes
- Winter Jackets
**If your child needed to borrow an item, please wash and return (besides underwear-you can keep those) as soon possible so they are available for other students to use. Thank you!
We have begun state required vision, hearing, height and weight screenings for all students. Specific information can be found here https://www.attleboroschools.com/page/health-screenings. These will continue through the winter months until all grade levels are completed. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
