Fit Fam: How to Get the Whole Family Moving Together – March 13:

Rethink your idea of what exercise is! A workout doesn’t have to mean running laps or lifting weights. Exercise is leading an active lifestyle, which you can do with your kids, and you’ll be able to fit in more than you think. As a bonus, exercise with family will double as quality time. Let these creative ideas help you turn every day into an opportunity to get fit — and have fun — together. This event will take place from 6-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 13, at Lakeview Elementary School, 615 Lakeview Lane, Hoffman Estates. Fit Fam flyer

Helpful Hints From the School Nurse

Is My Child Too Sick To Go To School?

A common dilemma that parents face is “when should I keep my child home from school?”  It’s not easy as parents more and more today are juggling the responsibilities of family and work.   Here are some guidelines to follow.

Know the difference between a cold and the flu:

  •  Flu is a serious illness and symptoms include fever, chills, cough, sore throat, headache, or muscle aches.  With the flu, symptoms come on very quickly. It is advised to contact the doctor if these symptoms are present. An antiviral medication may be prescribed.
  • Symptoms of a common cold include stuffy nose, sneezing, sore throat, and hacking cough.  Often, cold symptoms come on gradually.,  Although the common cold is usually not serious, if symptoms are severe, it is a good idea to keep your child home to rest, rather than spread the cold to other children at school.

Keep your child home from school if:

  • He has a fever. This means a temperature 100 degrees or higher.
  • She has vomited.   Keep your child home until they are symptom free for 24 hours and able to tolerate solid foods
  • He has diarrhea.  Encourage good hand washing to prevent the spread to other family members. Keep your child home until they are symptom free for 24 hours and able to tolerate solid foods.
  • She is coughing frequently or having any sort of breathing trouble.
  • He has a rash that is spreading.  Check with your child’s doctor to see if it is contagious before sending your child back to school.

In order to help prevent the spread of illness in school, students with a fever 100 degrees or more may not return to school until they are fever free for 24 hrs without the use of fever reducing medications such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen. GOOD HANDWASHING IS THE NUMBER ONE PREVENTION.

Your child’s School Nurse is available every day and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.  They are committed to working in partnership with parents to promote student health.
