Helpful Hints for Flu/Cold Season

Many of you are aware that this cold and flu season has potential for becoming quite severe.

As a friendly reminder, please refer to the sick day guidelines to answer any questions you may have about your child reporting to school when illness strikes.  Please remind your children to cover coughs and sneezes.  Use tissues. Keep their hands to themselves and away from their face.  Especially be sure to remind them to wash their hands after using tissues and after using the bathroom.

It is a proven scientific fact that frequent hand washing is the most effective way to prevent the spread of disease.

Here’s to healthier days ahead and Spring!!
