NATIONAL HISTORY DAY!!!
A MESSAGE FROM MRS. MANDRAGOURAS, SCHOOL NURSE
Now that the cold and flu season is here, we all need to be extra diligent about staying healthy.
· Not touching our eyes, nose and mouth will decrease the chance of germs entering our bodies.
· Washing our hands often and coughing and sneezing into our elbows, will decrease the germs we are exposed to and give to others.
· By getting adequate sleep, 9-10 hours for adolescents, we can optimize the functioning of our immune systems.
· Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables (5-7 servings a day) and aiming to exercise daily, can also help our bodies resist infection.
· Monitor your stress level –make sure you do something fun every day!
STOP THE SPREAD OF GERMS THAT MAKE YOU AND OTHERS SICK!
You can be contagious 24 hours before symptoms exist therefore making the following EVEN more important to practice every day.
WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!
· Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, NOT YOUR HANDS.
· Throw your tissue into the nearest waste basket.
· Wash hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds or clean with alcohol-based hand cleaner.
· You may be asked to wear a surgical mask to protect others.
· Stay home if you have a fever. A fever is a temperature of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or higher. (37.8 Celsius) Stay home until you are fever free for 24 hours without fever-reducing medicine.
It is sometimes difficult to decide whether or not you should keep your child home from school due to illness. Here are some basic guidelines to refer to. Of course when in doubt, it is always best to contact your healthcare provider concerning your child’s health.
· Fever of 100 degrees or higher within the past 24 hrs.
· Vomiting or severe diarrhea within the past 24 hrs.
· Very sore throat or red throat with white or yellow patches.
· Unexplained rash.
· Earache or drainage from an ear.
· Red, itchy eye(s) with dried yellow mucous.
· Excessively runny nose or a productive cough, especially with yellow/green drainage or sputum, accompanied by a fever.
