Giving Germs to Cold Shoulder

Thursday, 7 July, 2022 - 11:17 am

 As many of you have unfortunately discovered, the cold and allergy symptoms which are so prevalent now can be similar to some COVID symptoms.  This causes confusion when deciding whether to bring students to school in the morning.

Please be assured that we are working on an authoritative guide to making these decisions, which we will share with you as soon as it is reviewed for medical accuracy.  For the next few days, until the guide is ready, we ask that all coughs, runny noses, upset stomachs, reduced senses of smell, headaches, wheezy breathing, and other symptoms which could be colds, allergies, or COVID, be directed to Nurse Toso.  

If Nurse Toso says that your child may attend school, she will inform us before you arrive.  If Nurse Toso feels that your child should not attend school, or that you need to speak with a doctor, we ask that you comply, so as to keep school open in-person as much as possible.

To curb the spread of colds in school, please ensure that you discard disposable masks after one use, and wash reusable masks regularly.  Studies are now showing that masks that are not washed regularly collect significant numbers of germs and bacteria. 

With holiday travel and guests, questions regarding quarantine may soon arise.  Please know that we are aware of the issue, and are preparing as much as possible to answer those questions.  Many of the answers will depend upon individual circumstances.  
Thank you once more for your efforts, which have been evident in so many instances, to keep school safe and in-person.  Your commitment keeps school going!

Shabbat Shalom.
