Guidelines for Keeping Our Students Healthy

Illnesses like the flu (influenza) and colds are caused by viruses that infect the nose, throat, and lungs.  The flu and colds usually spread from person to person when an infected person coughs or sneezes.  To stop the spread of germs, you must cover your mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing, wash hands with soap and water often, avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth, and stay home when you are sick.  See a doctor when needed.   Students with Temperature of 100° or above must stay home until they are fever free without medication (Tylenol or Ibuprofen) for 24 hours.
