News from the Nurse
We have had a few cases of head lice at BHES. Parents please continue to check your child’s hair at least once a week all year. The school can help try to eliminate the problem, but the responsibility starts at home. Signs and symptoms of head lice are itching around the ears, back of neck and crown of head. Nits (eggs) are teardrop in shape, about this size (-), and range in color from white to yellowish-brown.
It is not too late to get your flu shot. The CDC states the vaccination can still be beneficial as long as influenza viruses are circulating. CDC recommends that providers begin to offer influenza vaccination as soon as vaccine becomes available in the fall, but if you have not been vaccinated by Thanksgiving (or the end of November), it can still be protective to get vaccinated in December or later. Influenza is unpredictable and seasons can vary. Seasonal influenza disease usually peaks in January or February most years, but disease can occur as late as May. The flu is a respiratory disease and not a stomach or intestinal disease.
The Bismarck Women’s Club will be collecting winter coats and pants for the Fair Hope Ministry. They are in immediate need of coats and especially boys pants sizes 6-16. If you have any to donate you may send them to school.
