Health Awareness

With the possible spread of the Coronavirus, and as we are at the peak of cold and flu season, Central Nine would like to provide you with important tips on how to protect our students and families from illnesses.

  • Any student with a fever should remain home until they are “fever free” (without a fever-reducing medicine) for 24 hours.
  • Any student who has vomited should remain home for 24 hours.
  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use alcohol-
    based hand sanitizer.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with tissues or by coughing into the elbow.  Avoid coughing into the air. Dispose of used tissues.
  •  Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay away from people who are sick or not feeling well and avoid close contact with others through hugging, kissing, or shaking hands.
  • Disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects such as counters and doorknobs.
  • Seek assistance from a doctor or health professional if you see or experience symptoms that cause concern.

To prevent the spread of germs in our building, Central Nine is taking the following precautions:

  • Additional hand sanitizer dispensers will be installed in the building.
  • Signs encouraging proper handwashing and sneezing/coughing techniques will
    be posted.
  •  Classrooms will be provided with hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes.
  • A student who is sick will be quarantined in the Student Services Conference
    Room until a parent/guardian can pick him/her up.  Sick students will be
    required to wear a medical mask.
  • Desks/work areas of sick students will be sanitized immediately.
  • And finally, students and staff are encouraged to stay home if sick.  Do not “tough it out.”
