A Message From Our Principal
Dear Vine Hill Families,
Welcome Back and Happy New Year! El Nino is in full swing and we are experiencing many rainy days. I will make every effort to send the children outside if it is not raining. It is important that they have the opportunity to be outside in the fresh air. Please send your children to school dressed appropriately for winter weather.
Furthermore, I know there is an increase in traffic on rainy days. Please plan accordingly and leave home early so your children can arrive at school on time. Pay attention to the roads, your child's safety is our number one priority.
Kids and the Cold/Flu Season
February 3, 2016
Dear SVUSD Families,
The 2015/2016 cold and flu season is in full swing. We are experiencing a typical rise in “ILI’s” (influenza-like illness) at all of our school sites. Our school offices are seeing numerous students every day with fevers, runny noses, upset tummies and coughs.
We are asking for your help in preventing the spread of colds and flu!
Please check your child before school for signs of illness (runny nose, cough, no appetite for breakfast.) Any temperature of 100 or greater indicates illness, and your child should not come to school. They should remain home until they have been free of fever for a full 24 hours WITHOUT fever reducing medicine. So…. if your child has a temp of 100 at 9am on Monday morning, they should not be at school on Tuesday, even if the fever breaks during the day. This is important to prevent the spread of illness to other students.
In addition, the CDC recommends the following:
(don’t cough into your hand)
As always, encourage your students to get good rest and nutrition.
Thank you for your help in keeping our students healthy during this cold and flu season!
