ADAT News Report – From Student Council
It’s Still Flu Season – Keep Up the Precautions!
It is flu season, and California is among the states that are reporting a surge in cases of the flu. At school, we are implementing the following procedures:
1- We continue to go over hand washing with students: Get hands wet, rub in soap for at least 20 seconds (or the time it takes to sing one verse of “Happy Birthday”.) Rub the soap in between fingers and on the backs of hands. Rinse. Wipe with paper towel (not on shirt or pants).
2 – Use “Dracula arm” to stop cough germs.
3 – Use a tissue to cover mouth for sneezes or coughs. Throw tissue away immediately.
4 – Use hand sanitizer after covering your mouth with your hand or blowing your nose, or before using a keyboard.
5 – Specialists will give students a squirt of hand sanitizer to rub in before they enter their classroom. (This is important to prevent the spread of germs from grade to grade.)
6 – Teachers will wipe down classroom door handles with antiseptic wipes in between every teaching block.
7 – Remind students to avoid touching their mouths, noses, or eyes without a tissue.
Teachers whose rooms are closest to bathrooms will wipe down the entrance door handles of the bathrooms periodically.
Families must also participate to minimize the spread of infection.
1 – Keep children home if they are sick.
2 – Keep children home for 24 hours after their fever has gone away without the use of fever reducing medication.
3 – Keep children home for 24 hours after the last episode of vomiting.
4 – If your child complains to us of not feeling well, we will take his/her temperature. If our thermometer registers 99.8 degrees or above, you will be called and expected to pick up your child. The soonest the child can return to school is in 2 days.
We do not wish any child to miss school. These procedures help avoid or minimize the absences of students and staff.
We appreciate the teamwork required to keep children healthy.
