At the high school, we are beginning to see students with symptoms of possible influenza virus and other illnesses. We want to take this opportunity to reinforce guidelines that our school district abides by to promote wellness and minimize disease transmission in our schools.
All students should remain at home from school with the following symptoms of illness or disease:
It is important for students or parents to communicate with the health office if they are out with illness for more than two days. If they have seen their physician, be sure to bring a note to excuse their absence for missed days. Students should also communicate with their teachers. When they are feeling better, plans can be made for make-up work to avoid falling behind in classes.
We encourage students to get their flu shots as a means of illness prevention. There are many opportunities to receive them through physician offices, pharmacies, and flu clinics.
As a reminder, frequent handwashing is one of the most important practices to prevent illness. If students come to school ill they not only feel ill and are unable to focus in class, but they risk the spread of illness to others. We would like to wish all of our school families a very healthy and happy Holiday Season. Please contact us in the LOLHS health office if you have any questions or concerns at 860 434-4444 X1004; email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
