Tips for School:
Wash your hands frequently with soap and water. Germs are passed directly and indirectly
and hands are the biggest source of contamination.
If you are sneezing or coughing, use tissues. They cut down on the airborne germ contamination.
Throw used tissues away and again—wash your hands!!
If a child has been vomiting or having diarrhea all night, keep them home; do not send
them to school to spread the stomach virus.
If your child has been running a fever of 100-101 or higher, do not send them to school.
Keep them home where they can rest comfortably until they are fever-free for 24 hours.
