    Mosquito season is on us and we should be concerned about moquito borne illness like west nile and Zika. Please apply bug spray on the  exposed skin when you go out during dusk or dawn and while going to the wooded areas. Wearing long sleeves and light colors help too. If you get bites, applying baking soda paste to the area as soon as you can helps to minimize the local reaction.

    I am sure you have been hearing a lot about the flu lately. It really take a village to stop the transmission of flu. If your child gets the flu-like illness, please keep them home till they are fever free  for 24 hours without fever reducing medication. Encouraging your children to wash their hands often and to keep their hands off their face can help a lot in keeping them healthy.

    We are seeing a recent spike in the number of flu cases reported to us. The health department advice is to stay home fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications before returning to school to prevent the spread of flu. Flu shot, hand washing and staying home are the best preventive tools we have. If your child reports not feeling good in the morning, please check their temperature and keep them home if their temperature is at or above 100F.

     There are prescription medications availlable to treat the flu if you start the treatment within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms.

    Posted by Emily Mathew on 10/14/2015

    Health screenings (vision, hearing and acanthosis nigricans) are in progress. Students in PreK, KG, first, third,and fifth grade are screened along with all the kids new to the district. If a student fail the initial screen, the nurse will rescreen the student and check for any associated health problems. When your child fails the rescreen, you will be notified and get a referral to the doctor.  If you gets a health referral, please schedule an appointment with the appropriate doctor soon to diagnose and treat the reason for failing the screen. We also screen the kids  referred by teachers or parents.
