Together We Can Fight The FLU!


Influenza is a contagious disease of the respiratory tract that can lead to serious complications like pneumonia. The flu can worsen chronic health conditions like asthma. Flu symptoms may include fever, chills, headache, extreme tiredness, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, and body aches.  The best way to protect your family from influenza is to get vaccinated each year.


Flu Shots are available at the HOPE Clinic. Call to make an appointment @949) 515-6725 before supplies run out!


The top five most virus-contaminated areas in the home are:

  1. Telephones
  2. Appliances such as the refrigerator and microwave

  3. Faucets

  4. Light switches and door handles

  5. TV remotes

Ways to prevent the flu: eat right, exercise, and get plenty of rest; wash your hands frequently and cover your cough; disinfect hot spots at school, work, and home; and use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer frequently throughout the day to kill germs.


Please remember that students recovering from illness should be fever free, without fever-reducing medication, for 24 hours prior to returning to school. Healthy students learn better.


With holiday celebrations approaching quickly, please remember to speak with your student’s teacher prior to distributing treats in class. Many students have severe allergies. We are an allergy aware school. Together we can keep our children safe.


6th Grade parents - It’s not too early to prepare for 7th grade. TDAP Vaccinations are required for 7th-grade entry. Once completed, provide the vaccination record to the school nurse.


Enjoy your holiday season and stay well!
