A Message from Nurse Wendy
We are seeing A LOT of illness at CC Mason. Strep Throat and Gastroenteritis (vomiting & diarrhea) are the main culprits.
- Please talk to your children about good hand washing, especially before they eat and after blowing their nose! Remind them to cough and sneeze in their elbows. Remind them to never share food or drinks.
If your student is absent or sent home sick,
please remember the following…
- Your child MUST be symptom free for 24 hours without the use of medication before he/she can return to school. If they come to school before then, you will be called to come pick them up! This is a district wide policy set to prevent the spread of illness.
- If the doctor prescribes your child antibiotics, he/she MUST be on the antibiotic for 24 hours before returning to school. If they come to school before then, you will be called to come pick them up.! This too, is a district wide policy set to prevent the spread of illness.
- If your child is diagnosed with Strep throat, Influenza (A, B or unknown), Staph infection, Ringworm or any other contagious illness, you MUST notify the clinic nurse and/or teacher. We have to report numbers to the district and health department every week. (No names are reported, just numbers)
- If you find lice (live bugs or nits/eggs) in your child’s hair at home, Please report it to the clinic nurse! They will NOT be excluded but I keep a lice log. This is the only way I can track a problem in a certain classroom or grade level.
Together, we can beat these bugs! Thank you in advance and please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
