Illness Prevention Guidelines

Illness Prevention Guidelines:

As flu season is upon us, our goal is to promote a community of health and wellness at Peterson Elementary School. We would like to take this opportunity to remind you again of the district guidelines, based on best practice standards, which are in place to maximize the health of our students and staff.

If your child is running a fever of one hundred (100) degrees or greater, please keep your child at home until the temperature has been less than one hundred (100) degrees for twenty-four (24) hours, without the use of fever-reducing medications.

If your child is experiencing vomiting or diarrhea, please keep your child at home until these concerns have been resolved for twenty-four (24) hours, and your child is tolerating food.

Colds and respiratory viruses are common during the school year. If your child is coughing continuously or has green-colored nasal secretions, you may wish to consult with your medical provider and follow his/her directions.

If your child is diagnosed with a contagious illness such as strep throat, measles, chicken pox, or pertussis, please notify the school as soon as possible.

As a reminder, frequent hand washing with soap and water is the primary way to prevent the spread of illness.

Thank you for your cooperation in helping us to promote a healthy, happy school environment. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me, Marney Collins RN, BSN (630-428-7278), or Dena Klein RN, BSN, PEL-CSN (630-428-7251)
