Cold and Flu Season

It is that time of year again! Flu, Strep, Stomach Viruses, and all sorts of other nasty bugs are floating around EVERYWHERE! 

There are things you can do to avoid illness:

  • Hand washing is number one! Wash your hands often--before and after meals, after using the bathroom, after touching a dirty surface, etc.
  • Cover your sneeze in the crook of your elbow--this helps prevent the spread of germs. 
  • Don't touch the "T Zone"--this is the eyes, nose, and mouth area of your face. It is a good way to avoid spreading illness-causing germs!
  • Stay home when you are sick! Keep your child home from school if he/she is sick! 

Here is a guide to help you decide on staying home if you don't feel well:
