ATTENTION 7TH GRADE PARENTS!!!!
If your child is a 7th grader, he/she will need to receive the Meningococcal AND Tdap immunizations BEFORE the beginning of 8th grade! Ask your pediatrician if your child is up to date. You can also check with the nurse to see if she has updated records showing that your student is compliant. Summer appointments fill up rapidly, so act quickly.
Grace Mattei, RN
| SHOT CLINIC
TSMS and the Lincoln County Health Department are offering a shot clinic so help insure that your child will be compliant on their immunizations to start the 20-21 school year. Please CLICK HERE to sign up before the deadline of March 10. You may also talk to our school nurse for details.
We are seeing A LOT of cases of Gastroenteritis aka the "stomach flu" at TSMS! Here are some quick facts from WebMD:
What's often called "stomach flu" is gastroenteritis, an infection of the stomach and intestines. The flu, or influenza, is different. It causes sore throats, running noses, and general aches and pains. It rarely causes stomach problems. Viral infections are the usual cause of gastroenteritis.
Give lots of fluid. The biggest danger from gastroenteritis is dehydration from the vomiting and diarrhea. Water is good, sports drinks such as Gatorade and Powerade are okay for school age children. Electrolyte solutions such as Pedialyte are the best for young children and infants or for any age when the vomiting or diarrhea are persistent and long lasting. Stay away from milk, acidic juices and caffeine.
Introduce food slowly. Once your child is able to keep fluids down, think BRAT: give bananas, bread, rice, applesauce, and toast. Of course chicken noodle soup and crackers are eventually a good addition.
Skip over-the-counter meds. The vomiting and diarrhea are the body's way to fight the infection by getting rid of everything. Anti-diarrhea and anti-vomiting meds can actually cause the infection to last longer. Ibuprofen can upset the stomach even more, so Tylenol is the best choice if you need to reduce a fever. Stick with bland foods and lots of fluids!
As always prevention is key. Good soap and water hand washing is the absolute best prevention.
Finally, if your student is recovering from the "stomach flu" PLEASE keep them at home until they are able to keep food down with NO vomiting for at least 24 hours and are fever free for 24 hours! This will help reduce the spread of the virus.
