Healthy Kids / Health Alerts
Please read the District Health Alerts or CDC web sites for information on FLU, MRSA or other health related topics.
CDC - Flu Page - has prevention suggestions with many things to download
Some things I always like to remind parents and students:
No medication can be on campus unless there is a form with a doctor's and parent's signature on file.
No medication can be carried by students except inhalers, but paper work must be completed first.
Students who are sick or injured must come to the office to call home. Students must have a special to leave school.
Please remind your student(s) not to share, food, drinks, lipstick or balm, or anything else in which saliva might be exchanged. This helps to limit exposure to seasonal conditions like the flu and colds. Washing hands frequently, especially before eating, can help your household to remain flu free. If your student(s) have upper respiratory congestion please send them with their own supply of tissues.
