Cold and Flu Season is Upon Us

Dear CRE Students, Parents and Families,
 
Flu season has begun! DCSD schools are beginning to see cases of Influenza as we are getting really into the swing of flu season. We have also seen a lot of fever, stomach bugs and other yucky stuff.
 
Please remind your students of the importance of frequent hand washing and covering their mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing. If your child is running a fever or showing other symptoms of the flu, please keep them home.
 
As a reminder, we require that students are fever free (without the use of Tylenol and Motrin) for 24 hours before they return to school. They must be free of vomiting and diarrhea for 48 hours before they return to school. Please contact our school nurse, Amanda Lytton, for any questions or concerns regarding student illness. 
 
Here's a little video you can show your students!

When it comes to mental health services, communities traditionally focus on supporting kids as needs arise. This work is crucial for the safety of our students. Equally important, though, is prevention-based programming that can help, early on, prevent the social-emotional challenges our kids may be experiencing from escalating.
