*Reporting an absence to the Main Office: Call #781-581-1600 and dial "2" to report your child absent. All calls must be before 8:30 am each day your child will not be in school. You may leave a message if your child is sick or injured and the secretary will forward this to the Health Office. Please note your child's symptoms on the recording if they are ill with a fever or other contagious illness.  This will allow us to track multiple illnesses in a classroom or in a group of students and inform parents if a classroom is has a particular concern.

*Effective communication between the Health Office and parents is extremely important in order to help your child in the event of an illness or injury. You may leave a message any time of day/night, even weekends, to update the Health Office with any information we need to be aware of regarding your child. We will return your call as soon as possible. We are better able to care for your child if we have the specific information available to us. Also, please make sure the home phone, work and cell numbers on file are the most recent and up to date. Call the main office if any changes are made during the school year.

We have 12 students at our school that are allergic to Nuts, wheat, eggs, and many other food items.  Strict avoidance of the allergen is the ONLY was to prevent a life threatening allergic reaction. Due to the nature of peanut/nut products, it is more challenging to prevent contamination of surfaces in the classroom, cafeteria, bathrooms, keyboards and other areas in the building.   **Please remember that all of our classrooms are NUT FREE regardless of whether there is a student in that classroom/grade with a nut allergy. This includes products which state "may contain traces of" nuts/peanuts/tree nuts or "manufactured in a facility which processes" nuts/peanuts/tree nuts.  Scroll down to read further details of our Johnson School Life Threatening Allergy guidelines.

January/February updates....

Head lice can be a recurring problem among school children and are not considered a health hazard, as they do not spread disease and/or illness. Head lice are a common frustration, however, the mass screening of all students in a classroom and/or school does not control the spread of head lice. Rather, the spread of head lice can be minimized with routine inspection for live head lice and nits by parents and treatment of those students found with live head lice. Head lice can spread from person to person by having head-to-head contact. Having head lice is not associated with age, sex, race, social class or hygiene.  Please consider checking your child when they return home from school today.  The following information will help you control the problem of head lice in your home.   

Health Office Referrals:  You may have received a referral for any of the screenings completed at the Johnson School (ex. Hearing/Vision, Postural or BMI) for your child.  These referrals need to be completed and returned to the Health Office before the completion of the present school year.  MDPH requires documentation from a physician of your child was referred by the School Nurse for any of the mandated school screenings to be kept in the student's health record.  If you do not have the original referral letter, please call the Health Office and a new one will be provided.  If your child has already had the evaluation, please call the physician's office and ask for a letter to be mailed or faxed to the school with the results and treatment plan, if any.  If you have not yet scheduled an appointment for your child, please call to arrange for the appointment as soon as possible and return the form to the school at any time.  (can fax to #781-581-0440 or mail to JS 290 Castle Road, Attn: School Nurse)


Flu activity has increased in the U. S. according to the CDC latest report. 
Influenza-like-illness is defined as fever (temperature of 100 degrees F or more) AND a cough AND/OR a sore throat.  Influenza continues to spread and is serious; vaccination is recommended for nearly everyone and it is NOT TOO LATE to vaccinate!!!

While the timing of flu seasons is impossible to predict, based on past experience its likely that flu activity will continue for some time.  For more information on national flu activity, visit  http://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly
 

Sick Child Guidelines

The Johnson School staff realize there are times when it is in the best interest of your child to keep him/her home from school due to illness.  We must try to provide a healthy environment for all students and staff members in the school.  Young children are notoriously good at spreading germs. Parents know their children best and can help to determine if the child is well enough to remain in school for a 6 ½ hour school day.  Therefore, the goal of the sick child guidelines is to assist the parent/guardian with the decision to keep their child home from school due to illness or infection.  **A note from your physician may be required for your child to return to school if diagnosed with a contagious illness or hospitalized due to an illness. (ex. influenza, pneumonia)  Please check with the school nurse prior to returning to school if you have any questions.

Your child’s physician can help you determine if your child is able to return to school, however it is important to make sure they are truly feeling better and able to make it through 6 hours of the school day.   If they still seem tired, pale, with little appetite, not tolerating solid foods, and generally "not him/herself", PLEASE do not send them to school.  With viral illnesses it may take longer before your child is well enough to return to school.

Students should not attend school if:

·      The student has a temperature. The student may return to school after having a normal temperature for at least 24 hours while not taking any fever reducing medications (ex. Tylenol or Motrin).

·      Antibiotics are prescribed. The student may return to school after taking the antibiotics for a minimum of 24 hours and without a temperature over 100 degrees F for at least 24 hours without taking any fever reducing medications.

·      The student is vomiting. The student may return to school approximately 24 hours after symptoms resolve, and is able to tolerate a normal diet.

·      The student has diarrhea. The student may return to school approximately 24 hours after symptoms resolve, and is able to tolerate a normal diet.

·      The student has an undiagnosed rash.  A rash may be indicative of many things, frequently of illnesses that are contagious.  Therefore, a student will be excluded from school until a physician evaluates and determines the nature and contagiousness of the rash.  A note is required from the physician upon return to school.

·    The student is diagnosed with a communicable disease or illness.   (ex: conjunctivitis, Influenza, Pneumonia, Strep Throat, Pertussis, head lice, Chicken pox (Varicella), impetigo, scabies).  Please contact your school nurse before sending your child back to school.

·      The student has severe cold symptoms, upper respiratory infection, a persistent cough, a runny nose that they cannot manage by themselves &/or contain with tissues, or other symptoms that would interfere with effective school participation.

·     They seem tired/lethargic, pale, with little appetite, and generally "not him/herself”.



Remember the 24 Hour rule of thumb

Return to school guidelines

November/December News........

Wishing our Johnson School families a Healthy and Happy Holiday Season and New Year!!!!


Screenings....... 

Hearing and Vision screenings have been completed and the MD referral letters have been sent home.  If you do not receive a referral, your child has passed the screenings according to the guidelines set by the MDPH program.  

Growth Screening in grades 1 & 4 will take place the week of 11/18 in gym class.  MDPH requires screening for height, weight and BMI in schools as well as recommendations for pediatricians to include it at your child's annual physical exam.  Parents in Grades 1 & 4 should have received both an email and a hard copy of the letter sent home along with a Q&A sheet for most commonly asked questions about the screening. If you have not received the letter, please call the Health Office.  Most importantly, a change in the guidelines was implemented by MDPH this year.  We will not be sending home any letters to inform parents of the results of the screening including BMI results.  However, the information will be made available to any parents upon request.  Please submit a request in writing to the Health Office for your child's results if you are interested.  Your child's results will be kept strictly confidential and will not be discussed with anyone.  A summary of the data with no child specific information will be sent to the MDPH as part of their community-level data collection.  If you do not wish for your child to be included in this screening, you must submit a written request to the Health Office before 11/18. 

Click HERE to go to the BMI information section of this website.

Postural Screening will take place in December.  The MDPH requires screening for spinal abnormalities including scoliosis in grades 5 & 6 and again in middle and high school.  We will be conducting postural screening for these grades only during gym class in the second week of December.  More information will be coming along with letters to parents and the dates/times of the screening. If you do not wish for your child to participate in this screening, you must submit a written request to the Health Office by 12/4 and then provide documentation from your child's pediatrician with documentation of the screening within the past year.  Please call the Health Office if you have any questions.


Head Lice.......

Unfortunately, Head Lice season is here and man children will have at least one case of head lice detected in the classroom before the school year is over.  We at the Johnson School want to help keep your child and our classrooms free of head lice.  We suggest you click HERE to read the information below on our website and discuss it with your entire family.

October Updates....


**Studies have shown that school absenteeism due to illness is reduced when children practice good hand washing.

Please teach and encourage your child to wash their hands frequently and especially after coughing or sneezing, before and after meals, after using the bathroom, and after playing outside. 
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze!




Remember the 24 Hour rule of thumb

Return to school guidelines


 
                                                 

Students may return to school after the following:

24 hours without temperature (and without taking fever reducing medications such as Tylenol or Advil/Motrin)

24 hours without nausea, vomiting, diarrhea (and tolerating a normal diet)

24 hours of receiving medication (such as antibiotics, eye ointments)

If your child still seems tired, pale, with little appetite, not tolerating solid foods, and generally "not him/herself", PLEASE do not send him/her to school.  Some viral illnesses may take longer before your child is well enough to return to school.


Meningococcal Disease

Consider Vaccinating your child against Meningococcal Disease.  Read the commonly asked questions about the disease and find out more information.  Talk to your child's physician about the vaccination at your next visit.  


Physicals........

Grade 3 students have receive a letter to parents with information regarding the mandated Fourth Grade Physicals which are due before entering fourth grade next fall.  The exams should take place during the 3rd grade school year or over the summer prior to entering grade 4. The letter was sent home with your child on 10/9/13 so you have plenty of notice and time to collect the information requested. The physical exam should also have an updated immunization list submitted as well.

You can submit the physical exam forms at any time during the 3rd grade year when completed, or mail to the school over the summer.    Click HERE to read the letter sent home to parents on 10/09/2013


Reminders.......

Pre-School students are required to submit the most recent physical exam. Remember to send a copy of your child's latest physical to the Health Office after each annual visit. When your child is ready for Kindergarten it will be a lot easier for you as the majority of the necessary forms will already be completed and turned it!


Health Screenings...

State mandated screenings for Hearing, Vision, Height/Weight/BMI, and scoliosis will begin in October!  We start with Hearing and Vision in our Kindergarten classroom and continue up through the grades.  We will then move onto the Height/Weight/BMI in grades 1 & 4 and conclude with scoliosis in December for grade 5&6 only.  You will receive more information as we go along in regards to the BMI and scoliosis screening procedures.

If you receive a referral letter as a result of the screenings, please contact your pediatrician and discuss scheduling a follow up exam as soon as possible. If you do not receive a referral letter, your child has passed the guidelines set by the Massachusetts Department of Education. 



Influenza reminders.....Get Your Flu Shot! it's not too late!  click HERE to bring you to the influenza updates on this webpage.



September 2013- Welcome back!

Let's stay healthy!!


Check the website often for the latest in Health Office news. In keeping with the Johnson School's intention to "go green", you will not receive paper copies of a monthly newsletter.   All important information and updates will be on our website and updated frequently. 
Please refer to the website often!!



**Initial information from the Health Office at the beginning of each school year mainly focuses on the importance of good hand washing to prevent the spread of disease and illness. 
The CDC also recommends what is called
"respiratory hygiene" or "cough etiquette". 
This is described as:
1. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. 
2.If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow and not your hands.

3. Throw your used tissue in the waste basket.          
4. Clean your hands after coughing or sneezing by washing with soap and water or using an alcohol based hand sanitizer if no soap/water is readily available. 


     

Food Allergies Guidelines

Please remember that all of our classrooms are NUT FREE regardless of whether there is a student in that classroom/grade with a nut allergy.

We have 12 students at our school that are allergic to Nuts, Sunflower, Sesame and Poppy seeds, wheat, eggs, and many other food items.  Strict avoidance of the allergen(s) is the ONLY was to prevent a life threatening allergic reaction. Due to the nature of peanut/nut products, it is a challenge to prevent contamination of surfaces in the classroom, cafeteria, bathrooms and other areas in the building.

**
If the product states "may contain traces of nuts" or "manufactured in a facility which processes nut products", then those products would not be allowed in the classrooms as well. As an added safety measure, in the cafeteria students will be asked to sit at a designated table if their lunch contains any peanut/nut products. After eating, they will be given a moist towelette to remove any food particles from face and hands before leaving the cafeteria.  There are many new products available as "peanut butter alternatives", we would ask you to make sure the ingredients in these products are safe for our classrooms and for our students with life threatening allergies.
For example
,  Sun butter products, which are made with sunflower seeds cause a concern for our students with allergies to them. The product contains no nuts, but still may not be appropriate for your child's classroom.  If your child brings in a peanut butter alternative for snack or lunch, you must label the outside of the bag to make our staff aware of the contents. If it looks like peanut butter, we must treat it as peanut butter.  If you have any questions about ingredients, please call the Health Office and we can assist you.

Other items.....
-Many students are coming to the Health Office requesting cough drops and "chap stick". While these measures are temporary they can be helpful for some students. However, cough drops pose a risk for choking and should be given only when necessary to children in school. Cough drops cannot be sent in to be kept with the student.  Students must come to the Health Office if they are in need of a cough drop. "Chap stick" is an item that students can carry in their backpack and use as necessary throughout the day. Please consider providing your child with a tube of chap stick that they may apply as needed when appropriate during the school day.

Tick- Borne Illnesses and Lyme Disease

How can you protect yourself from Ticks?  Click HERE to find out!

Check out the CDC's website for valuable information about Ticks, Prevention and Tick-Borne illness.

Lyme Disease information

The University of Medicine and Dentistry of NJ has developed new educational tools to teach children how to avoid tick-borne diseases and reduce pesticide use. The free tools are posted at the Lyme Disease Association website.

What Is Lyme Disease?
Lyme disease is an infection caused by bacteria called Borrelia burgdorferi.
 
How is it transmitted?
The bacteria are transmitted to people and animals by the bite of an infected black-legged tick, Ixo des scapularis, commonly called the deer tick. Although other types of ticks and some insects have been shown to carry the Lyme bacteria, to date, transmission of Lyme through those vectors has not been proven.
 
The bacteria can also be passed through the placenta of a pregnant woman to the fetus—congenital transmission.
 
The DNA of the bacteria has been found in breast milk, but no transmission has been proven to date in humans.
 
The Lyme bacteria have been proven to survive blood banking conditions; however, to date, no transmission has
been proven through blood transfusions in humans. Studies have shown transmission through this route in mice in the lab.
 
Check out the Lyme Disease Association's website for great resources and printable materials to educate yourself about Lyme disease and other Tick-Borne Illnesses. 


EEE and West Nile Virus

Residents Reminded to Be Vigilant about Protecting Themselves from Mosquitoes and EEE and West Nile Virus

photo of mosquitoAll residents are urged to continue taking personal precautions to protect against mosquito-borne illnesses, including Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) and West Nile virus (WNV). These include using insect repellent, covering exposed skin when outside, and avoiding outdoor activities between the hours of dusk and dawn, when mosquitoes are at their most active.

Peak times for mosquitoes are from dusk to dawn. Use mosquito repellent any time you are outdoors, but especially during peak times. And remember, being outside even a short time can be long enough to get a mosquito bite. If weather permits, wear long-sleeves, long pants and socks. Use mosquito netting on baby carriages or play yards when your baby is outdoors.

Keep mosquitoes out of your house by making sure screens are repaired and are tightly attached to doors and windows. And prevent mosquitoes from breeding by removing standing water around your house from places like wading pools, recycle bins, and flower pots. Mosquitoes can begin to grow in any puddle or standing water that lasts for more than four days.

Choosing an Effective Repellent

When choosing a repellent, look at the active ingredient on the product label. Repellents that contain DEET work very well against mosquitoes. In general, higher concentrations of DEET don't work better, they simply last longer. You should use less than 30 percent DEET on kids and infants over 2 months. Don’t use any DEET on infants less than 2 months old. Whatever product you choose, be sure to read the label to see what the concentration of DEET is and how often it should be reapplied.

There some other products that are proven to be effective against mosquitoes. They are permethrin, picaridin or IR3535. A number of "natural" products are available for use as mosquito repellents, but tests show that most of these products do not provide the same level of protection or work as long. The exception is oil of lemon eucalyptus, which provides as much protection as low concentrations of DEET(information courtesy of http://www.mass.gov/eohhs/gov/departments/dph/)
