News From the Nurse

All 7th graders in New York State are required to be screened for vision and hearing, as well as having a physical exam.  If your student had a physical at their doctor’s office please send it in to the nurse.


To avoid the risk of flu:

  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  • While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them.
  • If you are sick with flu-like illness, CDC recommends that you stay home for a least 24 hours after your fever is gone (without use of fever reducing medicine) except to get medical care.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. After using a tissue, throw it in the trash and wash your hands.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germ like flu.
