Flu Season is Here!

flu_seasonDear Parents/Guardians,

It is important to keep your child home from school if they have a fever or such things as “stomach flu” or influenza (cough/headache/muscle aches/fever), pink eye, strep throat. Some children may need to be on antibiotics for 24-48 hours before they are considered non-communicable.   Teach your child the importance of regular washing of hands and coughing into a sleeve as ways of stopping the spread of infections.   Remind your child not to share items that may have saliva (spit) on them such as cups/water bottles or musical instruments.
