Cold and Flu Season Tips

Here are some friendly reminders to help stay virus free this season:

-Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds.

-If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol based hand sanitizer.

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

-Cover your cough; cough and sneeze into a tissue then throw it away, or cough and sneeze into your upper shirtsleeve, completely covering your mouth and nose.

-Wash your hands after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose.

-Disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects such as toys and doorknobs.

-Stay at home while you are sick. FISD follows the Texas Department of Health Guidelines for illness related exclusions from school. A student will be sent home if they have a fever of 100.4 Fahrenheit or above or any other contagious symptoms (vomiting, diarrhea, etc.) and will need to remain home until symptom free to twenty-four (24) hours, and without the use of medications.
