Spring Safety Tips:   Continue to take everyday precautions against the FLU!

 

Spring Cleaning:  In addition to your regular spring cleaning chores, consider adding some that will make your home a little safer for your kids, such as cleaning out your medicine cabinet.

Sun Safety:  Remember, the sun’s rays are strongest between the hours of 10:00am and 4:00pm.  Use SPF 15 or higher, even on cloudy days.  It is important to get a healthy dose of sunshine each day.

Asthma/Allergy Action Plans:  Seasonal Allergy and Asthma Action Plans are important to review and update with your health care provider, and a copy should be on file at school, as well as a rescue inhaler.  Learn what your child’s triggers are – pollen, grass, molds, temperature changes, exercise, smoke, perfume, pesticides? Please Let us know.  Children deserve allergy and asthma friendly homes and schools.

New Immunization Schedules:  Check with your health care provider to make sure you are properly immunized, especially children entering 8th grade and 12th grade. All students entering 8th grade are required to have a TDap booster (Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis) and their first Meningococcal vaccine prior to the start of school.  All 12th graders are required to have their 2nd Meningococcal vaccine prior to the start of school.  Unless their first Meningococcal vaccine was after their 16th birthday.  Then just one Meningococcal shot is required.  Please contact me if you are unsure of what your child needs for the next school year.

Thanks for your cooperation.  If you have any questions please call me at 314-467-7980
