PREVENTING THE SPREAD OF INFECTION 

  • This website includes information about our ongoing and daily efforts to keep our students and staff safe and healthy, and reminders for parents and guardians.

      

    The District takes the following measures to ensure a safe learning environment for all students and staff:
    • Routinely disinfect campuses with Virex II 256 cleaner which is effective against multiple disease-causing viruses and bacteria;
    • Monitor students for symptoms and refer students to the school nurse for assessment as appropriate;
    • School nurses exclude students from school attendance according to Department of State Heath Services Guidelines: and
    • Work with Fort Bend County Health and Human Services' Epidemiology Branch for any suspected case of a "Reportable Condition."

     

    Parents and guardians can help to keep their child, our schools, and community healthy by:

    • Observing their child for signs of infection which may include coughing, colds, fever, itching on the skin and scalp and unusual rashes.
    • Keeping sick students at home and seeking medical attention for severe illness.
    • Reinforcing the importance of good hand hygiene.
    • Adopting healthy practices, such as disposing of used tissues, coughing into a sleeve rather than into a hand, and not touching one’s eyes, nose, and mouth
    • Keeping children home until free of fever for 24 hours (without the aid of fever reducing medication)
    • Keeping children home until diarrhea free for 24 hours (without the aid of anti-diarrheal medication)
    • Receiving the flu vaccine

    Tips to minimize spreading infection:

    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs spread this way.
    • Cover coughs and sneezes. Use a tissue to cover coughs and sneezes, then dispose of the tissue. When a tissue is not available, cough or sneeze into your elbow.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, especially when someone is ill.
    • Wash hands for 20 seconds. Washing hands often under clean, running water can help prevent the spread of germs. For more guidance see the CDC: When and How to Wash Your Hands.
    • If you cannot wash your hands, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60-95% alcohol.
