Health Room



Happy Autumn!
Now that the cold/flu season is here the following tips might be useful:
1.The State Dept of Health is urging everyone over the age of 6 months to get a Flu vaccine-you can get one at most of you local pharmacies,or several flu clinics that are run in the area,or your physician's office.

2.Please do not send your child into school if they are running a fever of 100-or above,are coughing excessively,or having large amounts of nasal drainage. For mild coughing you may send them to school with a note of permission for cough drops and the cough drops they will be using. The cough drops are kept in the health room.

3. If your child remains febrile, and is acting lethargic,and not eating well, call your physician.

4.For most colds you can help your child by giving them children's tylenol,ibuprofen or advil for discomfort and fever. Make sure they are getting plenty of sleep (8-10 hrs), and eating well-if not hungry make sure they have a lot of fluids. They should not return to school until their temperature has been normal for 24 hrs following a fever.
