Health Tips
Preventing the spread of germs
 
Wash hands with soap & water frequently and for the length of time it takes to sing the Happy Birthday song to prevent the spread of germs. Practice proper hand washing technique with your child; wet hands first with water then apply soap. Cover your cough and sneeze with your elbow or a tissue, then wash hands. Hand sanitizer is a good alternative when soap and water is not available.
 
Keep your child at home if symptoms of Influenza or Influenza-like-illness are present:
 
**Fever - Fatigue - Sore Throat - Cough - Body Aches - Stomach Symptoms**
