News from the Nurse
12-11-2014: It appears that the germs are enjoying their stay at LBMS. This week, I am seeing an average of 18 absences per day due to illness. Influenza A and the Norovirus (stomach bug) are the primary culprits. Two cases of Strep have been reported as well.
Hand sanitizer is in every classroom. Students are being reminded to wash their hands and cover coughs and sneezes. Please keep your child home if they are feeling ill, especially if there is a fever or vomiting. Remember to report absences to the office by 9:00 am, including your child's symptoms. This information helps me monitor the health of our school community.
As always, call or e-mail me with any questions or concerns.
