November 15th Announcements

From The OMMS Nurse

Dear parents:  Our community continues to see an abundance of flu cases. Flu often presents with body aches, chills, cough, sore throat and fever. This strain also seems to have some gastrointestinal symptoms, as well. Please be mindful of these symptoms and keep your child home if they are feeling significantly ill with any of these symptoms.  

Please remember that SCBOE states that a student should not attend school until he/she has been fever free for 24 hours WITHOUT the use of fever reducing medications.  Please use the following Google form to report any confirmed or suspected cases of the flu so we can monitor the severity of this outbreak. Thank you!
