 Notes from Nurse Alli

 
Just a gentle reminder that strep/flu/cold season is upon us. We have had several confirmed cases of Flu B, Flu A and strep throat. The main symptoms of the cases we have seen are stomach ache, headache, vomiting, sore throat, cough, fever, and dizziness. It seems that many children are complaining of headache and/or stomach ache at the very beginning then the fever seems to come with slower progression than typical flu symptoms. If I send your child home with a fever (or vomiting) or if your child is running fever at home, they MAY NOT return to school until they have been fever and vomiting free for 24 hours WITHOUT the use of Advil, Tylenol or Multi-symptom cold relief medication. This is not only to protect all of their classmates, but also to protect your child whose immune system is already working hard.

Please click here or refer to the Lovejoy link provided (under the Clinic Department for Hart) for more helpful Flu information:

 
It is a good time to review proper handwashing practices with young children. Using soap and rubbing vigorously under running water for about 30 seconds to one minute is important to get rid of the germs that cause the flu. Asking young children to "sing the ABCs" at a steady rate while washing will help them reach the 30 second mark .

HEAD LICE
This is the time of year that brings upsetting incidents involving head lice. Head lice can happen to anyone, so it is important to learn how to recognize, treat and prevent it from happening again! Here's what to look for:
 
-Persistent itching of the head
-Small white particles attached to hair that are difficult to remove
-Small brown bugs that move very fast
 
*We no longer conduct "line-up" classroom lice checks but if a child is having and sign/symptoms listed above they are sent to the clinic for assessment. We do not give specific information on particular children or classrooms that have had incidences of lice.  For more information please refer to the link on our website under Hart Elementary/Clinic drop down tab. On the left side there is a link that is always available for your education.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 469-742-8156 or email me at allison_wright@lovejoyisd.net .
Thank you so much for helping to keep everyone healthy this season!
