Help Prevent Norovirus and Other Illness
*If a student is ill and experiences a fever, vomiting or diarrhea they should stay home until they are symptom free for 48 hours.
*When clearing an absence, families will be asked if their student was ill and experienced fever, vomiting or diarrhea. Please be sure to report this information.
*If a doctor makes an official diagnosis of illness please share that when reporting an absence.
*Students and staff are asked to wash their hands frequently using warm water and soap. Hands should be scrubbed for at least 20 seconds before being rinsed and air dried or wiped with a clean towel.
*A specialized cleaner that neutralizes the norovirus and other similar viruses has been made available to school custodial staff. This cleaner will be used if there is an instance of vomiting or diarrhea in a classroom. Additionally, all students and staff are to be removed from a classroom if there is an instance of vomiting or diarrhea.
*Health Services staff may contact families for additional information if a suspected case is reported.
