Illnesses and fevers in school- and Covid 19 like symptoms.

Illnesses are most contagious right before and during a fever. They spread easily to others.

FEVER is defined as having a temperature of 100  or higher (American Academy of Pediatrics). 

Oak Hills Local School District has a policy that a student must be free of a fever (100) and without the use of fever reducing medicines for 24 hours BEFORE they can return to school. Students must also be 24 hours vomit free BEFORE returning to school. This Policy protects everyone in the building from spreading illness and preventing others from getting sick. 

With the current Pandemic we are asking each parent to assess your child each morning before school. IF they are ill please keep them home.

  1. Take their temperature
  2. Make sure they do not have Covid 19- Coronavirus symptoms such as:
    Cough
    Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    Fever or chills
    Fatigue
    Muscle or body aches
    Headache
    New loss of taste or smell
    Sore throat
    Congestion or runny nose
    Nausea or vomiting
    Diarrhea
     
    Please call your doctor’s office for instructions for treating a fever or if your child is sick. We know this is challenging since these symptoms are so similar to other colds and viruses. During this pandemic and until a vaccine is on hand, we all need to work together to keep the spread of Covid 19 down as we return to school.
     
    Thanks for your support.

 

         Ways to prevent the spread of germs:

1. Wash hands vigorously with soap and water  for 20 seconds, or use hand sanitizer frequently

( if a sink is not available), especially after coughing, sneezing or rubbing your nose.

Great Hand Washing Video !

2. Encourage coughing into your elbow or cover your cough.

3. Clean frequently touched surfaces and shared items daily.  Keep -cleaning supplies out of reach of children.
