Safety Tips to Remember

Fall is flu season, and the flu is exacerbated when people live around each other in close proximity. College students and elementary school students are not known for their hygiene habits. It’s important to make sure you and your child are vaccinated for the flu. Not only will it prevent you or them from getting sick, but it will also help prevent the illness from spreading.

If your child is young, make sure he or she knows the route to get to school, whether this is by the bus, walking, or bike. Even if you drive them to school, your children should know where they live and be able to give directions, just in case.

Make sure the school is aware of any medical conditions your child has, in case he or she should get sick at school.
