Flu season is here! The CDC recommends all people 6 months of age and older receive a flu vaccination. This year the vaccine provides protection against the H1N1 influenza and two other influenza viruses. The vaccine is still available - contact your pediatrician, family physician or local pharmacy for appointment times. It is never too early or too late to receive a flu shot! For more flu information, please go to www.cdc.gov.
Mosquito repellant at school: bug sprays are prohibited at school but the wipe-on types and lotions are allowed as long as your child can apply it himself/herself. Please send a signed note if your child will be applying the mosquito wipes/lotion at school. If mosquito repellant is needed for your child, please try to apply it before coming to school.
If your child is sick please keep him/her home to recover. A student with a fever should be kept home until fever-free without fever reducing medications for 24 hours. In addition, please call in the absence to the absence line at 281-641-2319 with the reason for the absence (fever, strep, vomiting, personal reason, etc.).
