A note from our nurse...
We have seen an extreme rise in influenza and strep throat cases here at Libbey in the past two weeks. Here are some tips; hopefully this is a help! Thank you for helping to prevent the spread of illness – we miss the kids when they are sick and can’t wait for everyone to get healthy again!
Some helpful reminders:
*If your child has a fever, they cannot return to school until the fever has been gone for 24 hours WITHOUT Tylenol or ibuprofen.
*If we have sent your child home from school sick, that means the illness has not been gone for 24 hours, so please keep your child home from school the next day (or until that illness has been gone 24 hours)! Both days will be medically excused and medically excused days do NOT count against your attendance totals!
*Doctor’s notes also excuse your child medically! No need to make a special trip in to give them to me… Just bring them when your child is better and I will go back and change the attendance code! J
*Wash those water bottles!
*If your child has been sick, get them a new toothbrush so they don’t re-infect themselves!
Please call us at Libbey if you have any questions!
We here at Libbey Elementary have so many Thank Yous to make!
Happy New Year!
