Note from the Nurse...
Published: Mon, May 23, 2016, 09:15AM CDT

Reminders From the Nurse:

I am seeing an increase in illness this week so I wanted to send a few reminders to keep our school healthy for the final stretch of school:

  • Stress the importance of hand washing to your child. Remind them to wash before eating and after using the restroom.
  • Eat a healthy balanced diet with lots of colorful fruits and vegetables.
    Drink 6-8 cups of water per day.
  • Sleep 9-10 hours per night.
  • Stay home if sick. State guidelines require students to stay home for 24 hours after last episode of vomiting or diarrhea. Students must be fever free for 24 hours without use of medication.

Thank you for doing your part in making Austin Elementary a healthy place to learn.

If you have questions or concerns please all the clinic at 214-496-7316.
