Health Update at LBMS (6)
News From the Nurse

This week, (12/9), I am seeing an increase in absences.  There are two different illnesses that are knocking kids down.  One is a gastrointestinal bug that is causing either nausea and vomiting or diarrhea. The other illness is a sore throat/respiratory bug, some students are also running low grade fevers.  This one usually starts with a bad sore throat and then a cough develops about 24 hours later.  The cough tends to linger for about one week.  Please monitor your child's symptoms, if they do not seem to be improving after five days, a visit to the doctor may be in order.

As always, please call with any questions or concerns.
