Park Hill Parents,
As many of you may know, we have a significant amount of sick students home from school and/or being sent home on a daily basis. Illnesses have varied between stomach virus, uncontrolled coughing, and fever (>100) with flu-like symptoms, all of which are very contagious. If your child experiences any of these symptoms please keep them at home to minimize exposure to others. Specifically, we ask that they be free from fever or vomiting for 24 hours before returning.
We encourage each of you to be diligent in minimizing the spread of germs. Although these may be common sense, the following suggestions serve good reminders:
- Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay
- home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs spread this way
- Cover coughs and sneezes. Use a tissue to cover coughs and sneezes, then dispose of the tissue. When a tissue is not available, cough or sneeze into your elbow.
- Clean and disinfect surfaces or objects. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill. Find additional CDC resources on how to clean and disinfect schools.
- Wash hands for 20 seconds. Washing hands often under clean, running water can help prevent the spread of germs. If you
cannot wash your hands, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60-95% alcohol.
