Cold & Flu Season

Cold & Flu Season
 
Winter months represent the peak for cold & flu season.  Encourage children to get regular exercise, plenty of sleep, and eat a nutritionally balanced diet to help them stay healthy.
 
Children are also reminded to :
 
* Cover their nose & mouth with a tissue when they cough or sneeze- throw the tissue away after use
* Wash their hands often with soap & water, especially after they cough or sneeze. If water is not nearby use the instant hand sanitizer gel located throughout the school building
* Avoid touching their eyes, nose, & mouth, since germs often spread this way
 
Parents/Guardians are reminded:
 
*Children with fevers of 100 degrees or greater should be kept home, and must be fever free for 24 hours without using fever- reducing medications before returning to school
