Norovirus Update and Prevention
If your child shows any sign of symptoms, please keep your child home for 3 days AFTER symptoms are gone even if they say that they are feeling better.
Symptoms include warning signs (any sign of paleness, weepy eyes, or feeling/acting sluggish) and vomiting (very severe). If your child shows ANY of these signs, keep your child at home.
If your child is coming to school, you must make arrangements for a quick pick up in case your child gets sick at school.
As of now all 5th grade students and siblings of 5th graders are out on Monday. This is where we know there is a high number of sick and children who were exposed to the virus. You must call off any students who are sick and who are siblings of fifth graders. Fifth graders do not need call off. Rest assured that Mr. Mayell, other district administrators, our nurse, Lisa Werner, and the health department are working closely together to determine the next move!
Please keep your family home and avoid buffets. Wash hands constantly and use bleach to clean and disinfect! Please follow these directives - we must work together to end this in our school and community!
Thank you for your cooperation!
