Welcome to the Liberty Elementary School Nurse's Office

 You can help to decrease the spread of illness by adhering to the following guidelines and suggestions:

  • It is important to keep your child home if they are experiencing flu-like symptoms (fever, sore throat, headache, body aches & cough) nausea, vomiting or diarrhea.
  • Encourage frequent hand washing or hand sanitizing, especially after bathroom use and before eating.  At home the student should have a towel for their use only.
  • Remind students to cover coughs & sneezes with their forearms.
  • Discourage your child from touching their eyes, nose & mouth.
  • Ensure your child is drinking enough water, eating well & getting adequate sleep.
  • When a student may return to school:
    • When they are fever-free for 24 hours without  the use of fever reducing medications
    • No vomiting or diarrhea for 24 hours
    • No medication used to reduce these symptoms for 24 hours

Be sure your School Nurse has a working contact number for someone who is available (and authorized) to pick up your child should they become ill at school.
