Parents: cold and flu season reminder

It’s that time of year……..

We are approaching that time of year when colds, flu and other viruses  are at their peak.  Headache, sore throat , cough, vomiting, diarrhea, and aches are some of the symptoms.

A child who has any of these symptoms and has a FEVER should not come to school. Your child can’t learn well when he/she is ill and other students and the staff are at risk for also becoming ill.

So please keep your child home until your child is feeling better and is fever free for 24 hours without fever medicine .  Call the school so they know the reason your child is absent. If your child is not improving, please call your child’s medical provider.

School nurses-  BPS-when to stay home from school is available in  your resource section. You can send it out in backpack mail
