General Guidelines for Preventing the Spread of Illness:

As a preventative measure, we encourage all students, staff, and parents to take common-sense precautions to prevent spread of all infectious diseases, including common illnesses like colds and the flu. Such precautions include:

    • Stay home if you are sick. Those who have a fever should go home and stay home for at least 24 hours after they no longer have a fever without the use of fever-reducing medicine.
    • Promote hand hygiene among students and staff through education, scheduled times for hand-washing, and ensuring the availability of soap, water, and hand sanitizer.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
    • Teach and encourage safe cough etiquette – cough or sneeze into a tissue, sleeve, or arm (do not use hands).
    • Provide routine surface cleaning
    • Consider not attending large gatherings, as this is where cold, flu, and other respiratory viruses often spread.
