    From the School Nurse: 

    Parents and Guardians, 

    There are several different viruses going around right now. The upper respiratory virus is winding down some but now a stomach virus is hitting hard. 

    While the stomach virus seems short-lived, it appears to be fairly contagious and is in all grades. Please keep your student home if they are not feeling well. Students are complaining of an upset stomach and general discomfort for a while before actually vomiting. Per USD 509 illness policy, students need to remain at home for 24 hours after the last episode of vomiting, diarrhea, and an unmedicated temperature over 100 degrees. 

    Please encourage your student to practice good hand hygiene. Please wash all soft surfaces (jackets, blankets, jackets, pillows) that have been at school.  

    If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at 620-892-5215 or
