TIPS FOR FLU SEASON

Flu season is here! Help us protect our students by taking these simple steps:

• KNOW THE SYMPTOMS: Flu-like symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, fatigue and nasal congestion.
• STAY HOME: Stay home if you experience a fever greater than 100 degrees and until you are fever free without Tylenol or Advil for at least 24 hours. Stay home if you have large amounts of secretions such as coughing and sneezing. Stay home if you experience vomiting and/or diarrhea and until you have been free of vomiting and/or diarrhea for 24 hours.
• WASH YOUR HANDS: Wash your hands with hot water and soap or use hand sanitizer several times throughout the day especially before eating, after using the restroom, and playing outside.
• COUGH AND SNEEZE PROPERLY: Cough or sneeze into your sleeve or use Kleenex. Never cough or sneeze into your hands.
• DISINFECT: Disinfect frequently touched items daily.
• DO NOT SHARE: Never share food or drink and encourage others to do the same.
• VACCINATE: Get a flu vaccination as they are still available at doctors’ offices, drug stores, and health clinics.
• PRACTICE THE THREE C’s: COUGH into your sleeve, CLEAN your hands frequently, and CONTAIN the flu by staying home when you are sick.
