Our mission is to offer a collaborative approach to health care that addresses every student’s mental, physical, and spiritual well-being in order to provide the best possible opportunity for success.
Important Notes & Reminders!
Winter Illnesses such as colds, flu, RSV, COVID, etc are still upon us. To prevent widespread illness in the school, please use the following guidelines to determine whether or not to send your child to school:
Please keep your child home if he or she has any of these symptoms:
- Fever (100.0 degrees or greater… your child may return to school only after his or her temperature has been consistently below 100.0 degrees for a minimum of 24 hours)
- Vomiting (even once)
- General malaise or feelings of fatigue, weakness or muscle aches
- Frequent congested (wet) or croupy cough
To help prevent the flu / colds, re-enforce your child’s good hygiene habits:
- Wash hands frequently
- Do not touch eyes, nose or mouth
- Cover mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing, use a paper tissue, throw it away and then wash hands
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
Even if they are feeling better and want to attend class, Do Not Send Your Child To School. Keeping a sick child at home will minimize the spread of infections and viruses in the classroom. Missed assessments and assignments can be made up at a later time.
Additionally, please check with your child before leaving home to see if they have taken any medications to help them get through the day. While we do have an emergency supply in the health room for those with proper documentation submitted, it is not meant for regular use.
Along those same lines, spring allergy season is about to start. Please make sure your child takes any allergy medication needed at home. This is not an option in the Health Room.
Students should arrive at school ready to attend class and feeling well to learn at their full potential, not needing immediate attention in the Health Room. Please call the Health Room if you have any questions.
Thank you in advance for helping to keep our community healthy!
