COVID-19 Information for Parents and Families

COVID - 19 Prevention

Prevention for COVID-19 is very similar to prevention for the annual flu virus and The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the following actions:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

  • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Stay home when you are sick.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

  • Get a flu vaccine – it’s never too late.

Please reinforce these actions with your children at home and staff will continue to do so at school.  We cannot emphasize it strongly enough: please keep your child home if they are sick.
