The CDC reports that at least 21 children have already died from the flu this season and that the flu has already reached epidemic status. The #1 way to stop the spread of infections such as the flu, strep, the common cold, and intestinal illness is to wash your hands! As often as you can during the school day, take a moment to wash your hands with soap and warm water long enough to sing the “Happy Birthday Song” twice. Can’t get to the bathroom or a sink often enough to send those germs down the drain? Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content to kill the germs, rubbing all surfaces of the hands until the sanitizer has dried.

By keeping your hands clean while at school, you will not only be protecting yourself-you’ll be protecting everyone around you too! Another way to protect one another is staying home when you are ill, especially if you have a fever of 100 degrees or higher.

Thanks for all that you do to keep the students and fellow employees of NAFCS healthy, safe, and ready to learn and work!
