 A message from our school nurse

 

Local doctor offices are reporting an increase in illnesses - both Norovirus and Strep throat.

Strep throat is a bacterial infection of the throat.  Symptoms begin suddenly and include:  fever, sore throat, headache, nausea, and difficulty swallowing.  Your child's doctor can diagnose strep throat and provide the necessary treatment to prevent complications.

Both Norovirus and Strep throat spread quickly from person to person in crowded places such as school classrooms.  If your child has vomiting, diarrhea, or a fever over 100 degrees, please allow them to rest at home.

The best way to prevent sharing germs is good frequent hand washing and cleansing contaminated surfacing!

Thanks for your help


Parents,

Children in elementary school should not carry hand sanitizer due to the risk of accidental ingestion.  Hand sanitizers should not be used as a subsitute for good handwashing except in situations where soap and water are not available.  These products can kill bacteria but do not kill viruses, which cause many illnesses in children.  The classroom teachers have hand sanitizer available and will allow your child to use it at appropriate times.  If you would like to send a classroom bottle of sanitizer for the teacher to use in the classroom, it would be very much appreciated.
