Welcome to Bussey Nation!
Message from GISD Health Services
Influenza activity is currently high at Bussey Middle School. To best protect our students from influenza, we remind you that:
If your child is ill with flu-like symptoms, it is extremely important for you to keep them at home. Do not send them back to school until their fever has been gone for at least 24 hours without the help of anti-fever medicines.
A doctor’s note is not required to return to school, and most children with mild flu recover in a few days and do not need to be seen by a doctor. But if your child shows signs of severe illness – such as difficulty breathing – please seek emergency care.
Finally, please continue to remind your children to wash their hands and use hand-sanitizer regularly, cover their cough, avoid touching their face, and to stay away from other sick persons as much as possible.
Influenza vaccine is still available from many doctors offices and the health department.
Buenas tardes estimados padres y madres,
Actualmente, hay un alto nivel de actividad de influenza (también conocido como la gripe) en Bussey Middle School. Para proteger a nuestros estudiantes de la influenza, les recordamos que:
Si su hijo presenta síntomas de la gripe, es muy importante mantenerlo en casa. No debe regresar a la escuela hasta que no haya tenido fiebre por al menos 24 horas sin el uso de medicamentos para reducir el fiebre.
No es necesario obtener un certificado médico para que su hijo regrese a la escuela. La mayoría de los niños que sufran de una gripe leve se recuperarán dentro de pocos días y no requieren atención médica. Sin embargo, si su hijo presenta síntomas de enfermedad severa – como dificultad en respirar - busque atención médica urgente.
Por favor, recuerde a sus hijos que se laven bien las manos y utilicen desinfectante de manos muy seguido, que se cubren la boca al toser, que no se toquen la cara, y que eviten en lo posible el contacto con personas enfermas.
La vacuna contra la influenza todavía está disponible en muchas clínicas médicas y en el Departamento de Salud.
