A message for teachers and parents from Mrs. Morse, our school nurse:
"We have received word of several confirmed flu cases at Otselic Valley. Please be vigilant with handwashing and cleaning in your rooms. If you have students blowing their nose or coughing in their hands, please encourage them to use the hand sanitizer in your room. You may want to limit your shared items as well or clean them daily.
Along with the flu we have several viruses which present themselves with rashes, fevers, or respiratory symptoms such as coughing and stuffy noses. These are lingering and when combined with the flu can be quite taxing on the child. Please encourage the students to drink water throughout the day.
Parents and guardians, if your child is not feeling well, please keep them home. This will help to slow down the spread of the illnesses and prevent them from picking something else up on top of what they already have. While we want the children here, we need them healthy so they can learn."
