An Important Message from FCSD District Nurses
There is a surge of community-wide illnesses such as Flu A, RSV, Strep throat, COVID as well as allergies and common cold viruses. Many of these illnesses share similar symptoms so it can be difficult to know which one your student(s) may have. If your child is complaining that they are not feeling well, we ask that you:
1. Check a temperature before sending to school. If they have a temperature of 100.0 or more, please do not send them. Students should be fever free for 24 hours on No Fever reducing medication before returning.
2. IF no fever is present, please give medications for stomachache, headache, coughing or other symptoms before sending them to school. Students MAY NOT bring medication to school and District Nurses cannot give ANY medications to a student without a signed medication form from their Doctor.
3. IF your student is fever free, but has a stuffy/runny nose or cough, please encourage them to take precautions to limit the spread of germs until they feel better.
Lastly, but most importantly … Please update your contact numbers in Final Forms so that you can be reached should your child become ill at school. District Nurses need to be able to reach you or someone on your Emergency contact list.
Feel free to reach out to your Building Nurse with any questions. Thank you for your help with this.
