With flu and cold season around the corner, please remember the following preventative measures:
Wash hands - Often with soap and water for 20 seconds
Cover your cough/sneeze with a tissue, then dispose of contaminated tissue promptly and wash hands
Keep sick child home until symptom-free for 24 hours
Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
Avoid kissing, hugging and sharing cups or eating utensils with people who are sick
Disinfect frequently touched surfaces such as toys or doorknobs
Seek medical attention for symptoms of illness
Utilize availabe vaccines - DCS holds vaccine clinics yearly. Watch the web for more information as time draws near.
For children who have a history of asthma or reactive airway disease and have current medical orders for rescue inhalers, make sure your child has access to this medication. Make sure the school nurse has current orders for ALL medications (ALL medication orders need to be renewed at the beginning of EACH school year) and has the current medication - see below for medication administration forms
Make sure the school has parent's most recent and correct contact information
