An Important Message From the Health Office
Posted 01/31/2017 10:30AM

Close indoor contact with others increases the chance of sharing germs such as the flu. Currently we have an increase in intestinal flu and respiratory illnesses. To minimize the chance that your child would get the flu, the Health Office offers some suggestions.

PREVENT THE SPREAD OF GERMS

If your child becomes ill at school (fever, vomiting, diarrhea) he or she will be EXCLUDED FROM SCHOOL THE FOLLOWING DAY, possibly extending the 24-hour exclusion period. Please see page 19 of the Student Handbook for the Health Office policies regarding illness and return to school.

If you have questions, please feel free to call the Visitation Health Office at 651-683-1708.
