Home Visits

I will be assigning Home Visit time for the first week of May. I will be assigning times based on where you live to allow for enough time to get to all 16 students homes in the 3 days. If your address is different than the house that we visited in the fall please let me know, Wednesday 4/10. Also I will do my best to accommodate everyone but we only have the times during school hours on the 3 days provided, so I will get the times out ASAP to allow for you to request time off work if necessary.

Reminder we are going to the ZOO on April 30th so make sure everything is turned in soon.

Influenza in the class

Parent Letter re: Influenza

Dear Parents,

A student in your child’s classroom has been diagnosed with influenza.

Influenza is a disease caused by a virus that infects the respiratory tract, and is commonly called “the flu”.

Symptoms usually appear within 2 to 4 days after being infected and include:

  • Fever (usually 100.5 F to 103.5 F in adults and often even higher in children)
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Headache and muscle aches
  • Extreme fatigue

Colds and influenza are the most contagious during the first 48 hours.  A child who has a fever should remain at home until they are “fever free” for a minimum of 24 hours without any fever reducing medications.  If your child is having any of these symptoms,  please contact your healthcare provider.

Prevention of the flu can occur by receiving the flu vaccine yearly from your healthcare provider.  In addition, teach your children good hygiene habits such as washing hands frequently, covering mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing,  and avoiding close contact with people who are sick.

If you have any additional questions, please contact your healthcare provider.

 

Sincerely,

The Dearborn School Nurses

Fact Sheet: Flu (Influenza)

What is influenza?                                       

It is a disease caused by a virus that infects the respiratory tract, and is commonly called “the flu”. Compared with most other viral respiratory infections, such as the common cold, influenza infection often causes a more severe illness.

 

What is the treatment?

  • Get plenty of rest.
  • Drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration (i.e., water, juice, and tea).
  • Take non-aspirin medication for fever and body aches.

How is it prevented?

The best way to prevent influenza is to be vaccinated against it.  The influenza vaccine is made from inactivated (killed) influenza viruses each flu season; the vaccine will boost the immune system’s ability to fight various flu viruses.  There is also a flu vaccine available as a nasal spray which is a weakened form of the live virus. Sometimes, an unpredicted new strain may appear after the vaccine has been made and distributed. Even if someone does become infected with the new strain of influenza, the disease symptoms may be milder because the vaccine may provide some protection.  You cannot get the flu from the flu vaccine.

Additional prevention measures:

  • Wash hands frequently, especially after coughing, sneezing and handling used tissues.
  • Avoid close contact with those who have cold or flu-like symptoms.
  • After contact with a person who is ill, wash your hands and keep your fingers away from your eyes, nose, and mouth to prevent the spread of the virus.
  • Boost your immune system by eating a healthy diet, and getting regular physical activity and plenty of rest

What are the symptoms?

Symptoms usually appear within 2 to 4 days after being infected and include:

  • Fever (usually 100.5 F to 103.5 F in adults and often even higher in children)
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Headache and muscle aches
  • Extreme fatigue

 

Most people who get the flu recover completely in 1 to 2 weeks, but some people develop serious and potentially life threatening medical complications, such as pneumonia.  Flu-related complications can occur at any age; however, the elderly, people with chronic health problems, pregnant women and young children are much more likely to develop serious complications after influenza infection.

How is it spread?

Viruses that cause flu are spread by direct contact with respiratory droplets (i.e., coughing and sneezing). Flu viruses enter the body through the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose or mouth. Those at highest risk for infection live in densely populated areas, are in crowded living situations, or attend school.

رسالة أولياء الأمور: الانفلونزا

 

أولياء الأمور الكرام،

 

  لقد تم تسجيل إصابة بالإنفلونزا  في صف ابنكم /ابنتكم .وهو مرض يسببه فيروس يصيب الجهاز التنفسي، ويسمى عادة “الرشح/ الزكام”.


عادة ما تظهر الأعراض في غضون 2 إلى 4 أيام بعد الإصابة وتشمل:
الحمى (عادة 100.5 F إلى 103.5 F عند البالغين، وغالبا ما تكون أعلى عند الأطفال).
السعال
إلتهاب الحلق
سيلان أو إحتقان في الأنف
ألم في الرأس و العضلات
التعب الشديد
تعتبر نزلات البرد والأنفلونزا من الأمراض الأكثر عدوى  خلال الـ 48 ساعة الأولى من الإصابة. يجب استبعاد الطفل من المدرسة حتى مرور 24 ساعة على زوال الحمى  دون أي أدوية خافضة للحرارة . إذا كان طفلك يعاني من أي من هذه الأعراض ، يرجى الاتصال بمقدم الرعاية الصحية الخاص بك.

 

أفضل طريقة لمنع الانفلونزا هي التلقيح ضده. بالإضافة إلى ذلك ، علم أطفالك عادات النظافة الجيدة مثل غسل اليدين بشكل متكرر ، وتغطية الفم والأنف عند العطس أو السعال ، وتجنب الاتصال الوثيق بالأشخاص المرضى.


إذا كان لديك أي أسئلة إضافية ، يرجى الاتصال بمقدم الرعاية الصحية الخاص بك.

 

شكراً لكم
