Avoiding the Flu

Good morning Parents and Guardians,

Just want to share some easy steps to help prevent catching or spreading the flu for your kiddos and yourself.

  • Cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing with your arm and shoulder.  Avoid using your hands to cover a cough or a sneeze.
  • Do your best to avoid touching your eyes and nose.
  • Make sure you wash your hands or use hand sanitizer often. Keeping your hands clean is one of the best ways to avoid getting sick.
  • Avoid close contact with others who are sick.
  • Practice other healthy habits like getting a good night’s sleep, practicing good self-hygene, and eating healthy meals.

I want to see all your kiddos at school so everyone needs to do their part to stay healthy.

Mr. Reeve

These components give young people the confidence to map out a post-secondary plan that aligns with their individual skills and interests. An ASVAB representative will be at school on Monday, February 5, 2018, to provide interpretation of student results.

Any sophomore, junior or senior who wants to take the test may sign up in the counselor’s office from January 3-12.
