FLU PREVENTION


There are simple things that can be done to keep you, your children and our school community healthy:

Keep children home from school if they have a fever of 100 or higher.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as the Texas Department of State Health
 Services, recommend that
schools exclude students until they are fever free for 24 hours
 without the aid of fever reducing
medications such as acetaminophen(Tylenol) or Ibuprofen
( Motrin/Advil)

Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze with a tissue of the inside of your elbow.
 Make sure you throw the dirty tissue in the trash immediately.  Avoid touching your mouth, eyes and nose. 

Wash your hands frequently.  It is recommended that hands be washed for 15-20 seconds.  This
about the same time it takes to sing "Happy Birthday" twice.

When soap and water are not available, alcohol based hand sanitizers may be used.

Make sure children get plenty of sleep and physical activity, drink water and eat good
food
to help them stay healthy.

If you or your child falls into a high-risk group, contact your health care provider to see if
a flu shot is available to you.
