Spring Allergies have started! Does your child suffer from spring allergies? The following are some things you can do to help your child during the allergy season:
1. Regularly administer allergy medicine as prescribed by your doctor
2. When your child comes in from outdoors: -Wash hands with soap and water -Wash off face (including glasses) with water and cloth -Wipe down body from head to toe with wet wash cloth -Change clothing if staying indoor
3. Try not to allow your child to go into the bedroom with the clothing worn outside; this will prevent the pollen from falling onto the bed.
Students will play outside for recess and most days for PE. Students will only be permitted to stay indoors with a doctor’s note. Please call the health room if you have any questions
