Health tips

Central Virginia is seeing a seasonal increase in illness, and schools are implementing extra cleaning procedures to fight the spread of viruses and flu. We need your help to fight viruses and flu in our schools:

  • Please make sure that everyone washes their hands with soap and water several times each day. Only use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Children who are sick should stay home and not come to school. Children who have a fever, cough, stomach upset or other symptoms should see a health-care provider.
  • Children must be fever free for at least 24 hours without medication before they can return to school.
