Tips and Reminders for Being Healthy at School
- Potty Accidents: Kinder and first grades, if your student still has potty issues, please keep extra clothing in your child's backpack in case of an accident.
- Not Spreading Germs: Teach students it is important to cover all coughs and sneezes with elbows, rather than hands.
- Staying Healthy: Always wash hands after using the restroom and before eating.
- Sick Days: Diarrhea, fevers, and persistent coughs are all reasons to keep students home, if symptoms persist consider a doctor's visit.
- Ready to Learn: Students should come to school rested and ready to learn. Children need lots of sleep and should go to bed between 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. (considering age).
- Having Engery: Make certain students eat a healthy breakfast and bring a good, healthy snack for recess. Learning takes lots of energy!
- Returning After Illness: Students should be fever free for 24 hours, with no medication, before returning to school.
- Injuries: If a student needs a medical intervention (cast or crutches), please send a doctor's note to the health office before the student returns to school.
Students learn better when they are healthy! Please take students to regular doctor, eye exams, and dental visits.
