Health Alert: Flu

Parents and students can help reduce the impact of  the cold and flu season by following these simple tips:

  • Get a flu shot.
  • Keep your children at home for fever of 100°  or more for 24 hours without fever reducing medication.
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds or more. If soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based hand rub/gel.
  • Cough and/or sneeze into a tissue or your upper sleeve, not into your hand.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
