Although the Covid-19 virus is not a concern for us in our area at this point, we felt it was important to send out some reminders as we all work to reduce the risk of transmission of respiratory illnesses. Our District will keep us all informed if there are heightened concerns.
Hand washing: Wash hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcohol based hand sanitizer, especially after coughing or sneezing.
Cough/sneeze etiquette: cover the mouth and nose during coughing or sneezing with a tissue or a flexed elbow
Stay home when sick: Students should tell parents if not feeling well, and together, make a plan to stay home from school.
Keep clean: Keep hands away from face and mouth
Avoid sharing utensils, dishes, and water bottles/drink containers
Stay healthy by eating healthy foods, keeping physically active (I just heard today that riding your bike improves your immunity), getting enough sleep.
