EBOLA: EXTRA PRECATUIONS TO KEEP OUR STUDENTS AND STAFF WELL

EBOLA: EXTRA PRECATUIONS TO KEEP OUR STUDENTS AND STAFF WELL

 
 

The Pelham Public Schools is taking extra precautions to ensure the wellness of our students and staff. We are:

  • Researching specialized cleaning products
  • Modifying our cleaning protocol
  • Making latest information available to our nurses  

We also urge parents to encourage their children to continue to follow basic preventative guidelines such as

  • Washing hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching of eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid kissing, hugging, and sharing cups or eating utensils with people who are sick.

If Your Child Feels Ill:    Please do not send your child to school.   Contact your healthcare provider at your own discretion for accurate diagnosis and treatment.
