It is currently cold and flu season throughout the country. We would like to remind you of an example of when your child should be kept home from school. If all families did their part, the spread of disease would be greatly reduced. Colds and flu can spread so easily, so it’s important that parents take precautions to prevent others from catching it.
If your child is diagnosed with strep throat, 24 hours of antibiotic therapy is required before returning to school. Besides harming everyone else with these viruses, respiratory infections can trigger an asthma attack in certain susceptible children. We need to prevent these asthma attacks so keeping your student home from school can help. Parents need to be careful with their children. If they seem unwell, it’s probably better to keep them at home. This will keep everyone safe.
