    Communicable Illness

    In order to prevent the spread of communicable illness, please refrain from sending your student to school if one of the following symptoms are present: A fever greater than 100 degrees Fahrenheit within the last 24 hours; acute diarrhea or vomiting within a period of 24 hours; red eyes with discharge; severe coughing or respiratory difficulty; infected, untreated skin lesions; yellow eyes or jaundiced skin; skin rash accompanied by fever.  Consult your private medical doctor when any of the above conditions exist, or when in doubt about sending your student to school.  Please see the pdf file below for information on how Randolph School District handles the incidence of communicable illness in our schools.

     

    Seasonal Influenza

    The seasonal influenza vaccine is the best and safest protection available against influenza. In addition to obtaining influenza vaccination, help protect yourself and others from influenza (and any other illness), by engaging in the following behaviors:

    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds
    • Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, nose or any mucous membrane with unwashed hands
    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces
    • Use good respiratory hygiene - cough and sneeze into a tissue or elbow
    • Properly dispose of used tissues
    • Follow Randolph School district policy  for illnesses.  Stay home when sick, and call your healthcare provider.
