Stay Healthy!

Remember to Stay Healthy
 

Unfortunately, this is the time of year when many illnesses are spread.  Please remember that students are to be out at least 24 hours for strep throat, pink eye, or any other bacterial infection (24 hours from when the student starts antibiotics).  For fevers, vomiting, diarrhea, etc., students are to return to school when symptom-free for 24 hours.   Please help us prevent the spread of these illnesses by adhering to these timelines.

This article from HealthyChildren.org details important reminders for preventing the spread of germs. Please feel free to contact our school nurse, Mrs. Tengwall, if you have specific questions.
