Preventative Measures for theSwine Flu

CUSD has worked to come up with preventative measures to reduce the risk to students and staff to the Swine Flu Virus.

*The district ordered tissues and hand sanitizer for all the classrooms and offices during this outbreak. They should be distributed by the end of the week.There should be enough hand sanitizer for each classroom and office. One bottle should last quite a long time if it is used properly. Student use will need to be monitored, tissues --a couple of boxes per classroom. *Staff and students are advised to furnish their own supplies from home if possible.
*The custodial staff is to take extra efforts to wipe/clean door knobs and faucet handles. Still, the best defense is soap and water hand washing.
*Several articles have been sent with instructions on how to avoid the virus. They are the normal, common, preventative, measures we are all aware of:
- Wash your hands
- Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze
- Avoid physical contact with others
- Keep your hands away from your eyes, mouth, and nose
- Wash your hands
- Wash your hands
