Flu Precautions

The Longwood Central School District would like to provide you with a few tips to help keep your family healthy during flu season. Health officials remind us of these four tips which are common sense and practiced daily, but are the best defense to keep yourself and your family well:

Wash your hands frequently
Use a tissue to cover your nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing
Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
Avoid physical contact with anyone who displays symptoms

If your child exhibits any symptoms of the flu, please do not send him or her to school, just as a precautionary measure and to ensure that others do not become sick as well.

In our schools we have implemented a daily routine to emphasis frequent hand washing, using hand sanitizer when entering a room and wiping down the desks at the end of the day with disinfectant wipes.

Please note that along with regular sanitizing, we will increase our efforts during the mid-winter break.  Cleaning and disinfecting are part of a broad approach to preventing infectious diseases in schools. 

The District will continue to be proactive during this flu season.
