Daily we are being bombarded by news of the Coronavirus or COVID-19. Influenza is actually a much bigger threat here with over 19 million across the United States this year being affected thus far. I have included information from Akron Children's Hospital's Infectious Disease Department on the right. As always please remember that good handwashing is the best prevention against bacterial and viral infections. See the link on the right for help on good handwashing techniques. Please also remember that if your student has a fever, vomiting, or diarrhea, keep them at home until they are symptom free for 24 hours without medication. Both of these will help greatly reduce the number of students getting the flu this year. Thank you for helping our community in staying healthy!
I have included information about lice. If you have any questions or concerns please call me or your school's clinic staff. If your student is attending a sleep-over, remind them to bring their own pillow and to always avoid prolonged direct head contact.
If you have any health related questions or concerns, please call or email me or any of my staff.
