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.
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 by keeping your student home from school can help.
