Looking Ahead in Paris ISD and Seasonal Flu Information for Educators and Parents

parisisd logoParis ISD not only released a list of the upcoming events at all campuses for the remainder of the month, but also wanted to share the following report on Seasonal Flu Information for Educators and Parents.

Educators and parents can help slow the spread of colds and flu. Influenza causes more hospitalizations among young children than any other vaccine-preventable disease. The single best way to protect against seasonal flu and its potential severe complications is for children to get a seasonal influenza vaccine each year. Flu vaccination is recommended for everybody aged 6 months and older. Making healthy choices at school and at home can help prevent the flu and spreading flu to others. Here are some great tips as it relates to the flu:

  • Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue away after use and wash your hands. If a tissue is not available, cover your mouth and nose with your sleeve, not your hand.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces or objects. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill.

Paris ISD school nurses have more information and ways for everyone to stay healthy. Please contact your campus nurse if you have any health related questions.
