This is an important announcement from Nurse Sprinkle:
We have seen several cases of the flu at school recently. As a reminder, please keep your chid at home and consult their doctor if they have:
• temperature of 100 degrees or higher
• muscle and body aches
• vomiting and diarrhea
To keep the spread of illnesses to a minimum, DO NOT send children back to school until:
• They have been without a fever for 24 hours (without fever reducing medicine, like Tylenol or Motrin).
• It has been 24 hours since their last episode of vomiting or diarrhea.
• It has been 24 hours since their first dose of antibiotics for anything like strep throat, pink eye, etc.
Thank you for your help in keeping our students and staff healthy, happy, and ready to do their best!
