Schools have reopened. Children get sick. The dilemma many parents and health professionals now face.. is it allergies, a common cold or Covid-19? The widely varied symptoms associated with Covid-19 can make it difficult to distinguish the virus from other common ailments that circulate in the fall.
Mitigation efforts and general public health practices, like hand washing, are essential in limiting the spread of illness. Please do your part to help keep our school communities healthy and the doors open for learning.
One of the most impactful things a parent can do, to keep the school year running smoothly, is to keep a sick child home and consult with his or her healthcare provider. Please conduct daily health screenings on your children - to ensure we are sending healthy kids to school.
