We are in the middle of the flu season. It is important to understand the difference between flu and the common cold, and to take the proper precautions to protect yourselves and your children against the flu.

If you or your child has the flu: Stay home! Stay home from work, school, and errands in the community when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness.


  • Get vaccinated. Vaccination is still the best protection against the flu. It is not too late to get vaccinated this season.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  • If you or your child gets sick with a respiratory illness like flu, limit contact with others as much as possible to help prevent spreading illness. Stay home (or keep your child home) for at least 24 hours after fever is gone except to seek medical care or for other necessities. Fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.
  • Conduct routine cleaning and disinfecting. Flu viruses are relatively fragile, so standard cleaning and disinfecting practices are sufficient to remove or kill them.
  • If an outbreak of flu occurs, schools should contact the Department of Health 802-863-7240 to report the outbreak and seek guidance.
  • The CDC has an excellent website about vaccinations. Please check it out if you have questions.

The Kindergarten students will be collecting food for the food pantry at the Thanksgiving lunch next Wednesday. If you are coming for the lunch, it would be awesome if you could bring a non-perishable item. There will boxes outside of the Kinder classroom for donations. You can drop donations off anytime through Wednesday. Thanks! K Team
