Following these simple guidelines will help make our school a much healthier place for all of us:
- Giving your child/children time to rest at home while they are sick will help prevent the spread of these viruses to others.
- Your child/children cannot return to school until they have been fever free for at least 24 hours without the use of medication.
- Keep your child home for at least 24 hours after his/her last episode of vomiting or diarrhea.
One of the most effective ways in helping to prevent the spread of illness is regular hand washing. Also, please remind your children not to touch their face, especially their eyes, mouth, and nose as this is a direct route for infection.
Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.
Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Be sure to lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.
Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.
We appreciate your continued support as we work together to keep our students healthy this school year. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Leslie Schwartz at 407-905-7737 ext. 3330. ~ Leslie Schwartz, Lower School Nurse
