It’s Cold and Flu season...

Here are some friendly reminders to help stay virus free this season:

· Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds.  If soap and water not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

· Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

· Cover your cough; cough and sneeze into a tissue then throw it away, or cough and sneeze into your upper shirt sleeve, completely covering your mouth and nose. Wash your hands after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose.

· Disinfect frequently touched surfaces, and objects such as toys and doorknobs.

· Stay at home while you are sick.

LISD follows the Texas Department of Health Guidelines for illness-related exclusions from school. A student will be sent home if they have a fever of 100.0 Fahrenheit or above or any other contagious symptoms (vomiting, diarrhea, etc.) and will need to remain home until symptom free for twenty-four (24) hours, and without the use of medications.
