  1. The first and most important step is to get a flu vaccination each year.
  2. If you get sick with flu, take prescription antiviral drugs if your doctor prescribes them. Early treatment is especially important for the elderly, the very young, people with certain chronic health conditions, and pregnant women.
  3. Take everyday preventive actions that may slow the spread of germs that cause respiratory (nose, throat, and lungs) illnesses, like flu. This flyer contains information about everyday preventive actions.

How does flu spread?

Flu viruses are thought to spread mainly from person to person through droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze, or talk. Less often, a person might get flu by touching a surface or object that has flu virus on it and then touching his or her own mouth, nose, or possibly eyes. Many other viruses spread these ways too. People infected with flu may be able to infect others beginning 1 day before symptoms develop and up to 5-7 days after becoming sick. That means you may be able to spread flu to someone else before you know you are sick as well as while you are sick. Young children, those who are severely ill, and those who have severely weakened immune systems may be able to infect others for longer than 5-7 days.

What are everyday preventive actions?

Try to avoid close contact with sick people.

If you or your child gets sick with flu-like illness, CDC recommends that you (or your child) stay home for at least 24 hours after the fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities. The fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.

While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep frominfecting them.

Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Afterusing a tissue, throw it in the trash and wash your hands.

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soapand water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.

Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs that can cause respiratory illnesses like flu.

If an outbreak of flu or another illness occurs, follow public health advice.This may include information about how to increase distance betweenpeople and other measures.

School Uniform Information

FreeLunch As we look toward the school year, we are excited to announce a new uniform policy for all students in grades K-5. Research studies have shown that students in uniform achieve at a significantly higher scholastic level than those schools without uniforms. In addition, studies also report that discipline problems drop dramatically in uniform schools, once students are able to focus on academics rather than fashion.

The new Altamonte Elementary uniform will become part of your student’s wardrobe beginning August 10, 2018. Beginning that date, Altamonte students should wear the uniform Monday – Thursday, with casual dress on Fridays. SCPS does not require uniforms to be purchased or worn.  Rather, input from the majority of parents supports this initiative.  Therefore, we will proceed and appreciate your continued support by having your children wear the uniforms according to the schedule above.

School uniforms will be easy to purchase at local stores like Wal-Mart, JCPenney, Sears and Target. The uniform will consist of:

Boys:
--White, Red, or Blue (navy preferred) collared

            ‘polo style’ shirts  

 --Blue, Black, or Khaki/Tan long pants or shorts; jeans are OK

 --Belts, closed-toe shoes/sneakers, and socks are required.

    (No sandals or flip flops—due to safety reasons)

Girls: 
--White, Red, or Blue (navy preferred) collared ‘polo style’ shirts  

 --Blue, Black, or Khaki/Tan, long pants, shorts, skirts, and skorts;

    Jeans are OK

 --Belts, closed-toe shoes/sneakers, and socks are required.

    (No sandals or flip flops—due to safety reasons)

We are looking into having an optional iron on patch available for purchase that has our school logo and name.  Information will come home when those are available.  We wanted to share this information with you now, so that you would have it for sales and school shopping over the summer.

 We appreciate your continued support and flexibility as we begin a new initiative designed to help our students focus and achieve their maximum potential. If you have any questions, please call the Altamonte office at 407.746.2950

Sincerely,

Mrs. Gamble

Principal
