Immunization Requirements to Enter Wall Intermediate School

 

Students entering the 6th grade at Wall Intermediate School will be required to receive a Tdap and Meningococcal vaccine upon turning 11.  If your child receives these vaccines before the end of this school year, please provide me with the documentation from your child's healthcare provider.  If your child receives these vaccines during the summer, you will need to provide them directly to the Wall Intermediate School Nurse prior to the start of the next school year.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

Spring Notes 

The cold and flu season is upon us. Your child’s health is our priority! To prevent widespread flu in the school, we recommend that your child stay home from school if experiencing flu or cold symptoms. To decide whether or not to send your child to school, please consider the following guidelines.

 

 

Please keep your child at home for treatment and observation if he or she has any of these symptoms:

Fever (greater than 100 degrees by mouth)  

*Your child may return to school only after his or her temperature has been below 100 degrees, by mouth, without Tylenol or Ibuprofen for a min of 24 hours

Vomiting

Diarrhea

Chills

General malaise or feelings of fatigue, discomfort, weakness or muscle aches

Frequent congested (wet) or croupy cough 

Lots of nasal congestion with frequent blowing of nose

 

 

Consider keeping your child at home for an extra day of rest and observation if he or she has any of the following symptoms:

Very stuffy or runny nose and/or a cough

Mild sore throat (no fever)

Headache

Stomach ache

 

A few helpful tips for this Spring Season... please pack lip balm for your child, bring a water bottle to stay hydrated, and encourage your children to wash their hands frequently especially when they get home from school. 

 

As April showers bring May flowers.....please make sure your child has on proper shoes, no flip-flops/slide-on shoes for outdoor recess.

 

Also, during this time of year when the weather can be unpredictable, please dress your child in layers.  There may be variations in temperature throughout the day (and throught the building) and layers are the best way to go.

 

Please be sure your child eats a meal before coming to school, skipping breakfast can result in poor concentration, headaches, stomachaches and feeling tired.

 

Thank you for all of your effort to helping make Allenwood a healthy!
