Dear Parents, Students and Guardians,


Increased Illness at School & Flu and COVID Prevention


Increased Illness at School

I hope this message finds you and your family in good health. I am writing to inform you about a recent increase in illness cases at our school and to emphasize the importance of flu and COVID prevention for your child's well-being.


Over the past few weeks, we have noticed a rise in the number of students reporting various illnesses, including colds, stomach bugs, and other common infections. While this is not uncommon at the start of the school year due to close contact among students, we want to take proactive measures to ensure the health and safety of our school community.


To mitigate the spread of illnesses, we kindly request your assistance with the following:


  1. Keep Sick Children Home: If your child has a fever or feels “unavailable to learn,” exhibiting symptoms such as cough, sore throat, vomiting, or diarrhea, please keep them home until they once again feel “available to learn.”  Your student must be fever-free for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication before returning to school.
  2. Encourage Rest and Good Nutrition:  Ensure you student gets enough rest and eats a balanced diet to support their immune system.
  3. Pack Essentials: Ensure you student has a supply of hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol), tissues and personal water bottle.
  4. Vaccination:  Stay up-to-date with recommended vaccinations, including flu and COVID-19 vaccines, if eligible and available. Consult your healthcare provider for guidance on vaccination.
  5. Stay Informed: Keep in communication with your healthcare provider for updates on illness trends and any necessary precautions.


Flu and COVID Prevention

One of the most effective ways to protect your child and our school community from the flu is by getting a flu shot. We strongly recommend contacting your healthcare provider to inquire if the flu shot is available and recommended for your child. Additionally, staying up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations and following public health guidelines, such as mask-wearing and social distancing, can help reduce the risk of transmission of both the flu and COVID-19.


Thank you for your cooperation in helping us maintain a healthy learning environment for all students. Your partnership is essential in keeping our school community safe and well.


Wishing you and your family good health throughout the school year.


Kind Regards,

Brian Kornreich, BSBME, BSN, MS, RN
