Dear Parent/Guardian,

We are again in cold and flu season.

In order to minimize the risk of becoming infected by these viruses it is important to practice simple preventative actions daily. The following are easy, helpful suggestions for you and your student.
• Wash your hands. Always before eating and, as much as possible, after contact with other persons. When hand washing is not possible hand sanitizer should be used. 
• Cover your cough and sneeze. Use tissue and dispose of it immediately when available. When tissue is not available, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve. 
• Do not share food or drink that you have already started to eat or drink. Saliva spreads germs.

Please keep ill children home from school until they are fever free without fever reducing medications for at least 24 hours as recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and remember to call the school nurse or attendance office to report your child's absence.

Thank you for your cooperation and for all that you do to help keep our learning environment safe and healthy.
