Currently, we are seeing quite a bit of strep, allergy related symptoms, and a cold like virus (not coronavirus). The predominant symptoms of this virus seem to be stomach ache, sore throat, low grade fever and headache.
Please remember, if your little ones have had diarrhea, fever greater than 100 (without medications), or vomiting they must be out of school for a full 24 hours so that we can help keep protect others.
*** Please copy Nurse Alli on (ANY) absences your student might have. Due to the current pandemic situation, I am tracking every absence. I need this information as to why your student might be absent whether it is for a routine dr appt or illness.***
I have had many questions from parents in regards to symptoms that their child may be exhibiting and whether exclusion from school is needed. I am sharing the following information directly from the Lovejoy ISD Planning Guide which is located on our website. On page 24 you will find some helpful information in regards to Health Pre-Screening for Staff and Students. I am hoping this will help clear up some questions.
