There are multiple illnesses going around among our students and staff. Here are some important points to remember: · Fever is considered a temperature of 100° F or over. State guidelines are: no school until 24 hours fever free WITHOUT the use fever-reducing medication. Students need to stay out of school 24 hours after throwing up or having diarrhea. Contact your health care provider if there are symptoms of influenza (sudden onset fever, chills, severe body aches, headache, chest discomfort). There are medications that can be helpful to your family but they need to be started within a certain time period. Sooner is better. Stay home when sick, avoid close contact with sick people, avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth, WASH your hands! Disinfect shared surfaces frequently. If your child misses school due to illness, they should not be at activities that evening. Please keep your children home when they are sick. Giving them medicine and sending them to school exposes not only the other students in the classroom but the teaching staff as well. Thank you!

Flu is a serious contagious disease that can lead to hospitalization and even death. You have the power to protect yourself and your family this season with these three actions to fight flu. 1. Get a flu vaccine. Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine by the end of October, if possible. A yearly flu vaccine is a first and most important step in protecting against the flu. As long as flu viruses are circulating, it is not too late to get vaccinated! 2. Take everyday actions to stop the spread of germs. Wash your hands often with soap and water, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, and wash your hands often with soap and water. If you become sick, limit your contact with others to keep from infecting them.

Flu season is around the corner! Protect yourself and your family this season with an annual flu vaccine for everyone in your family who is 6 months and older. While the timing of flu season is unpredictable, seasonal flu activity can begin as early as October and last as late as May. CDC recommends that people get vaccinated by the end of October, if possible. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body that protect against influenza virus infection. You have the power to protect your family against flu this season. Get yourself and your family a flu vaccine. Fight the Flu!

Reminders from Peg Butler, School Nurse: Cozad Community Schools had had many students absent due to a variety of illnesses. Here are some important points to remember: Fever is considered a temperature over 100° F. State guidelines are: no school until 24 hours fever free WITHOUT the use fever reducing medication. Students need to stay out of school 24 hours after throwing up. Contact your health care provider if there are symptoms of influenza (sudden onset fever, chills, severe body aches, headache, chest discomfort). There are medications that can be helpful to your family but they need to be started within a certain time period. Sooner is better. Stay home when sick, avoid close contact with sick people, avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth, WASH your hands! Disinfect shared surfaces frequently. If your child misses school due to illness, they should not be at activities that evening. Please keep your children home when they are sick. Giving them medicine and sending them to school exposes not only the other students in the classroom, but the teaching staff as well.
CHS Mid-Winter Dance will be on Friday, January 20th from 8-11. Please make sure to register out-of-town guests.
