Important Reminder from Health Services

It's that time of year again where many students and family members are coming down with various illnesses. In the schools, we have diagnosed cases of influenza, strep throat, as well as common colds. A rule of thumb is to keep kids home from school with fevers greater than 100 degrees, and students should be fever free for 24 hours without the use of medications.

Healthy Holidays

Holidays can be a time full of friends, fun, food and good times but they can bring sadness and unhealthy habits.

The key to making it through late October to January is remembering to take care of yourself. Taking care of yourself means different things to different people. Some of us need to be gentle on ourselves due to mental health issues; others may need to control overindulgences that change our overall health and wellbeing.
