A stomach bug is making its way around to students and staff once again. Symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and a low grade fever. It is lasting anywhere from 24 to 48 hours in most cases. Washing your hands frequently to reduce the spread of germs and getting plenty of rest is the best defense to help ward off sickness.

A stomach bug has been making its way around to students and staff. Main symptoms are an upset stomach and nausea. It is usually lasting 24 hours. Please wash your hands frequently to reduce the spread of germs.

Strep throat has also been going around. Symptoms can include a sore throat, low grade fever and headache. Students may return to school 24 hours after starting an antibiotic and fever free.

If your child has symptoms of a sore throat or cold and will require cough drops, please send cough drops with them to bring into the nurse's office for their use. 

Eye and hearing exams were done on Sept 30th. You should have gotten a letter if there was a concern with your child. If you have questions please let me know. 

Flu shots were given October 11th. If you would still like your child to get a flu shot, the Moniteau County Health Center in California is giving them. Call them to set up a time to get this at 573-796-3412.
