KEEPING HANDS CLEAN
Oct 15 Is Global Handwashing Day.
PLEASE use this opportunity to teach you children the proper way to wash their hands.
Wet hands with warm water.
Take soap into the hands and lather well and rub together all around tops of hands, palms and fingers, while they sing a song, like Happy Birthday or Itsy Bitsy Spider.
Take clean paper towel to dry.
Below is a great link to ways to teach your children this important lesson.
FLU PREVENTION TIPS http://www.preventchildhoodinfluenza.org/keep-flu-out-of-school/parentsguardians
PLEASE DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL IF THEY ARE SICK ( COUGH, CHILLS, FEVER )
IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE SO PLEASE VACCINATE CHILDREN EACH YEAR FOR THE FLU. If they catch it the symptoms will be far less severe.
***Children must be fever free for 24 hours ( WITHOUT MEDICATION) before they can return
If your child tests positive for the flu, please call me 201 646 7987. Please send a doctors note to clear your child to school if they have been out more than 3 days.
teach your children to wash hands often, cover cough, avoid people who are ill and avoid putting their hands on their faces or near mouth/eyes. Take some time to wipe common surfaces with santizining wipes.
