UPCOMING HEALTH EVENTS:


Stay tuned!


WHAT'S GOING AROUND?

*A few cases of headlice have been found in the Elementary.  In most cases, by the time the health office is aware of a student who has lice, they have already been infected anywhere from 2 weeks to a few months, so other students in their classroom have been exposed for that amount of time.  Parents, please monitor your child and keep them home until treatment is completed if you happen to find any signs of lice or nits.  Please visit the CDC website for additional information. https://www.cdc.gov/parasites/lice/head/prevent.html

*The health office has been notified of a suspected case of chickenpox (varicella) in the Elementary School.  Parents please monitor your child for any signs or symptoms of chickenpox, especially if they HAVE NOT BEEN immunized!  Please view the CDC website for more information at https://www.cdc.gov/chickenpox/about/

To check the status of your child's immunizations and to see if they are up to date on required vaccinations please visit https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/immunization/wir.htm 



IMMUNIZATIONS:

Is your child up to date? Please take the time to review the current immunization guidelines per the State of Wisconsin.  Parents will be notified by the school if any child is missing or in need of any required immunizations
