Nursing Notes

We are still in allergy and flu season. Many of the symptoms for both are similar. This makes diagnosis challenging for healthcare providers. If your student has symptoms such as:

  • runny nose
  • fever
  • cough (nonproductive)
  • new or worsening rash
  • diarrhea
  • body aches
  • headache
  • chills 

We ask that you keep them home until symptom free or on antibiotics for 24 hours. Please provide a doctors note if the student's condition is non-contagious. Many people have compromised immune systems so keeping exposure to a minimum is high priority. Thanks for your help keeping our students and staff safe, healthy and present. Hand washing is themost effective way to prevent the spread of germs. Have a healthy, happy fall. -- Steve Sand, RN (Registered Nurse)
