If your child has fever, vomiting, or diarrhea, please keep your child at home. Your child may return to school once they have been free of fever, vomiting, or diarrhea for 24 hours without the help of medications.
If your child has a rash of unknown origin or an eye that looks suspicious for pink-eye, your child will be sent home from school and allowed back with a doctor’s note clearing him or her for school attendance.
It’s not too late to get a flu shot! The flu vaccine is the best way to fight the flu. CDC recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older should get an injectable flu vaccine. The flu vaccine cannot give you the flu. If you have heard that the flu vaccine this year is “not effective”, know that the vaccine protects against multiple strains of the virus so even if it is not
effective against one strain, it is still offering protection against others.
Wash hands often and thoroughly. Hand hygiene is easy and effective in preventing the spread of bacteria and viruses. Soap, water and 20 seconds of scrubbing is all it takes to wash those germs away.
