ILLNESS AND ATTENDANCE
Illness proves to be a great challenge for attendance during the late fall and winter months. Our school nurse, Nurse Arlene, asked us to please remind everyone, especially our students, to cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue.
Especially important is washing your hands or using hand sanitizer after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose. In addition, she recommends that we drink plenty of water and choose nutritious foods rather than junk food and candy to help keep our bodies healthy during cold and flu season. Finally, citrus fruits help provide us with needed vitamin C during this time of year.
