Notes from the Nurses<br />

We have begun the health screening process for all<br />

sophomores and new students to the district. We check<br />

height, weight, vision, and dental, so wear your<br />

glasses/contacts daily. You never know when it will be your<br />

turn.<br />

As always good hygiene is important, shower daily and use<br />

deodorant..Be considerate of those with<br />

allergies/asthma/sensitive to strong smells and don't use<br />

perfume/cologne. Especially do not spray it in school.<br />

Wash your hands often for 26 seconds. If you are ill please<br />

stay home. If you have a temp of 100.00 or higher you will be<br />

asked to stay home that day and the next 24 hours to rest.<br />
