NOTES FROM THE NB SCHOOLS HEALTH AIDE
Cold and flu season is here and we are seeing its effects in our school district. There has been a notable increase in absences due to the common cold and flu.
If your child has these symptoms, he/she should stay home from school:
• Fever 100 or more
• Extreme Tiredness
Children must be fever-free without the use of medication such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen, 24 hours before returning to school.
Children that return to school too early may infect others, leading to further spread of the disease.
