Notes from Nurse G
As we all know, it takes a village and partnership to raise and educate our little kiddos. In addition it takes team work to keep them as healthy as possible. If your child has vomited, had diarrhea, or a temperature of 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, they must be symptom free, without any medication use, for at least 24 hours before they may return to school. Please help us keep all of our kids at Big Creek healthy by following these guidelines set by the CDC & CHOA.
Also, please let both their teacher and me know if your child has a contagious disease, ie: Flu, Strep, Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye), Mono, Lice, Meningitis, Chicken Pox, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Coxsackie Virus (Hand, Foot, & Mouth, Fifths Disease, MRSA, Impetigo, etc. This information is kept confidential, but is necessary to help us control any potential outbreaks (I am required to report these diagnoses to our county lead). If we have multiple cases (often 2 or more) in a class, within a short period of time, a letter will be sent home to keep you aware of the situation, but no names or personal information will be released.
As always please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 770-887-4584 x710402.
Thank you for helping to keep all of our Wildcats as healthy as possible!
