Spring Updates:

  • Don't forget that any medications that have been kept in the health office (EpiPens, Benadryl, etc.) MUST be picked up on the last day of school! Medications will not be kept for next year and any medications not picked up before 1 pm on the last day of school will be discarded.
  • FOOD ALLERGY PARENTS: Call to make your summer allergist appointment NOW so you can have the allergy action plan form completed by the first day of school.
  • According to news reports, the flu is making a second go-round, this time Influenza B is more prevalent than Influenza A. Please check out the flu information here and if you suspect your child may have the flu, please call your doctor immediately. Tamiflu can only be given within a certain time frame of symptoms appearing.

It’s that time of year…illness:

With the change in seasons, we are seeing the usual increase in illness. We truly appreciate your partnership as we strive to support our students to remain as healthy as possible. Please remember, children may return to school once they are 24-hours fever-free without use of medication, and 24-hours free of vomiting or diarrhea.

Thank you for continuing to report communicable illness; when a report is received, a grade level notification letter is generated. The custodial staff also performs an enhanced cleaning of the affected room. All students at Central are regularly encouraged to wash their hands and cover their coughs. If you have any questions about which illnesses to report, or general questions regarding whether your child is well enough for school, please don’t hesitate to contact the school nurse or your pediatrician’s office.

We are also seeing the return of reported cases of lice. Please make sure to check your children at home at least once a week. Regular checks at home are the best way to catch lice early on! For more information regarding lice, please click here. Make sure to notify the school for any discovered cases of lice and remember that students must be checked by the nurse to ensure they are lice and nit free before they can return to school.
