We had our flu immunization clinic and I'm happy to report that we had approximately 115 students and adults take part in this clinic.  Thanks to the Guthrie County Public Health nurses for coming down and thank you parents for recognizing the importance of getting your children protected against the flu.  The nurses will be back in the spring to take care of any immunizations that are needed by 6th graders to start Jr. High next year.

We are already in our Winter Weather Dress Code.  Parents please read through this dress code and make sure your children are dressed properly to play outside.

FALL - 2019

I think we just had the fastest summer, ever!!  We are already into the month of October and thinking about the flu season.  Guthrie County Public Health will come down to the Adair Campus on Friday, October 18th to vaccinate our children for the flu.  There will not be any mist given.  Paper work will be sent via email.  For those that do not have access to a computer, it will be sent home with your child.  Last year 128+ students and faculty took advantage of having Guthrie County come down.  I hope that we have even more this year.  Thanks to Guthrie County Public Health for helping us out.

 

When To Keep Your Child Home

1.  Children with a fever of 100 degrees or above, and/or they are not performing in class due to symptoms suggesting illness will be sent home from school.

2.  Children should be fever-free and without medicine for 24 hours before returning to school after illness.

3.  Children should be symptom-free from stomach flu, vomiting, or diarrhea for at least 12 hours before returning to school.  They should also be able to tolerate a regular diet and activity.

4.  Children should be excluded from school for a minimum of 7 days from the onset of chicken-pox and all lesions must be dried.

5.  Children with bacterial conjunctivitis (pink eye) should be excluded for a minimum of 24 hours after antibiotic eye medication has been started, and readmitted if there is no eye discharge.

6.  Children with any rash that is not identifiable by the school nurse will be sent home until it is determined by a physician that the rash is not contagious.

7.  Children with ringworm do not need to be excluded from school.  The lesion needs to be covered at all times.  The child will not be allowed to participate in contact sports or P.E. until the lesion has been determined to be inactive by a physician.
