Welcome to the Nurse’s Station!
The nurse’s office has limited space for sick children to wait for parents to pick them up. There have been times that a sick child has had to wait more than an hour to be picked up. If you are notified that your child needs to go home due to illness, please pick them up in a timely fashion. Also, to help limit the spread of infection, sick children need to be kept home and/or be picked up immediately.
Did You Know? Sneezes...
- are automatic reflexes that can’t be stopped once sneezing starts.
- can travel at a speed of 100 miles per hour with a radius of 5 feet!
- don’t happen while you’re sleeping, because the nerves involved in nerve reflex are also resting.
When to stay home
To reduce transmission of the virus in schools and the community, students, faculty or staff with influenza-like illness (fever with a cough or sore throat) should stay home and not attend school, after-school activities, or go into the community except to seek medical care until they are feeling better and without fever for at least 24 hours.
