A Note from our Nurse

There is a lot of talk regarding the  Novel Coronavirus.

Going back to basics can reduce the spread of respiratory viruses. 

These steps include:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if  hands are visibly dirty.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Stay home when you are sick.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

If your child is sick keep them home from school. This reduces the chances of sharing any infections with other students. Rest and fluids will help getting them back to school.
