*Important Update from The New York State Education Department and Department of Health: A host of respiratory viruses, including influenza, RSV and COVID-19, have taken hold in our state and in most of our communities. These viruses, while often manageable, can cause serious outcomes, especially for children. Communities and schools should encourage the following common sense precautions to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses:

1. Staying up to date on vaccines, including Flu and COVID-19.

2. Washing your hands often with soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds.

3. Not coughing or sneezing into your hands; sneeze or cough into your elbow.

4. Staying home when sick or symptomatic.

5. Wearing a well-fitting, high-quality mask when in public indoor spaces.

School nursing, a specialized practice of nursing, protects and promotes student health, facilitates optimal development, and advances academic success. School nurses, grounded in ethical and evidence-based practice, are the leaders who bridge health care and education, provide care coordination, advocate for quality student-centered care, and collaborate to design systems that allow individuals and communities to develop their full potential. The nurses of the North Rockland Central School District work across sectors, professions, and disciplines to build a culture of health and improve student and community health outcomes by providing leadership, advocacy, care coordination, critical thinking, and mitigation of barriers to health.
