Cold and Flu Season:

As we head into cold and flu season in Vermont we thought it would be a good time to share some health reminders to keep our school healthy. Below are a few health tips from the Vermont Department of Health.

Cover your cough or sneeze with your sleeve or a tissue.
Wash your hands often and well using soap and water or hand sanitizer.
Keep yourself healthy with rest, exercise, and eating healthy foods.
Stay home if you get sick and avoid close contact with sick people.

Head lice:
Many schools have periods of head lice each year. SATEC is very fortunate that at any one time less than 1% of our student population has head lice. Head lice are a common problem for children, and less often for adults. Children may get head lice because of the close physical contact they have with playmates in school and daycare centers. Head lice are not caused by poor hygiene. While, head lice can be a nuisance, they have not been shown to spread disease. Below are a few things you can teach children to do to reduce the risk of getting head lice.

· Encourage children to not share combs, brushes, hair ornaments, or hats.
· Limit the transport of personal toys such as stuffed animals from home to school.
· Ask children to keep their hats inside their coat sleeves.
