With the cold and flu season in full swing, Huntington Middle School's health office is reminding students and parents of a few health guidelines to help prevent the spread of infection and support proper recuperation of an ill child.
- Temperature: Your child must not be in school and be fever free for 24 hours before a school return.
- Vomiting: Your child must NOT have vomited for 24 hours before a school return.
- Nasal Discharge: Continuous nasal discharge increases the risk of illness to other children and staff. Please keep child at home.
- Troublesome Cough, Diarrhea, Contagious Diseases: Your child must stay at home when showing symptoms of a contagious disease such as strep throat, pink eye, flu, impetigo, ringworm, coughing, and rash. If you are not sure and have questions, please call your child's school.
Let's work together at this busy time of year to stay healthy in mind, body, and spirit!
