There has been a few students with the stomach flu. A few with strep throat. Other symptoms we have seen are fevers, sore throats, running nose and coughing. Hand washing is the best way to prevent the spread of infections.

Check back often as I will post updates regarding any health concerns in our district.

There are some important things that you can do to help stop the spread of germs and diseases.

1.  Wash your hands:  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 before rinsing and drying.

2. Cover your cough (most students are not using proper techniques.  Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Put your used tissue in a trash can. If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands.

3. Stay home when you are ill.  Stay home and rest. You will get well sooner, and will not spread germs to your friends. Students need to be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.

Hand hygiene is one of the best ways to prevent infections in any season, using hand-washing or hand-sanitizing as appropriate. For more information, visit
