Health Reminders

Below are some reminders related to the district health services. It is very important that you call the school office to update phone numbers anytime there is a change. If your child is sick, or there is an emergency involving your child we must know how to contact you.

Health Reminders From Your School Nurse

If you have questions or concerns about your child, please feel free to contact your campus nurse:

Our Team

Public health officials are advising that the flu and other common respiratory illnesses are circulating and recommending that everyone follow basic prevention guidelines, including:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, mouth and face with unwashed hands.
  • Do not share personal items such as food, drinks or unwashed utensils.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick. Keeping a sick child at home prevents the spread of illness in the school community and allows the child an opportunity to rest and recover. Please visit our Health Reminders page for WSISD’s health guidelines.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

When to keep your child at home:

Please do not send your child to school if they are sick.  Any child who is determined to be ill while at school will be sent home to prevent the spread of illnesses.

A temperature of 100° Fahrenheit (37.7° Celsius) or higher Fever free for 24 hours without the use of any fever reducer medications such as Tylenol or Motrin
