Help protect your family from EV-D68

To help avoid catching and spreading EV-D68, parents and children should always follow basic steps to stay healthy.

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds. Washing hands correctly is the most important thing you can do to stay healthy. See Handwashing: Clean Hands Save Lives.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact, such as kissing, hugging, and sharing cups or eating utensils, with people who are sick.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or shirt sleeve, not your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces, such as toys and doorknobs, especially if someone is sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick and keep sick children out of school.
  Flu season is here!  The CDC recommends all people 6 months of age and older receive a flu vaccination. Most pharmacies, clinics and doctor offices have the flu shot and FluMist available.  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.).
