As the seasons change we are seeing many students with cold and flu symptoms.  Please review our guidelines on when to send your child to school and when to keep them home.  Below are some recommendations from the CDC to help stop the spread of germs in school and at home. 

Take everyday preventive actions to stop the spread of germs.

  • CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against influenza and its potentially serious complications 
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people. 
  • While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them.
  • If you are sick with flu-like illness, CDC recommends that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities. (Your fever should be gone for 24 hours without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.)
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. After using a tissue, throw it in the trash and wash your hands.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like flu.
