Top Tips for a Successful Flu Season

Parents can take an active role all flu season long. Below are simple tips for parents:

    o  Create a Cleaning Crew: Host parent cleaning events before school
       starts and periodically throughout the year. Have everyone bring a
       different classroom supply -- such as disinfecting wipes, tissues and
       hand sanitizer -- to help keep your school clean year-round.
    o  Help Stock Up: More than 56 percent of teachers buy their own cleaning
       supplies. You can help by donating cleaning supplies, such as
       disinfecting wipes, to help your teacher stock the classroom and keep
       it clean.*
    o  Teach Healthy Habits: Remind kids to share wisely. It's great to share
       items like books, toys and pencils, but not items like combs, brushes,
       hats, toothbrushes, tissues, whistles, cups and forks.
    o  Encourage Nutrition: Breakfast is vital, so never skip. Pack your child
       a healthy lunch including fruits and vegetables and provide a healthy
       after school snack.
    o  Build Immunity: Students need to get plenty of sleep and physical
       activity, drink water, and eat good food to help them stay healthy in
       the winter and all year.
