Clinic

 

 

Do you have a sick child? Have they had a temperature of 100.4 or higher in the last 24 hours? Have they been vomiting in the last 24 hours? Do you need to work and do not have anyone to watch them?

 

Consider Kids Kampus Sick Klinic, open every day by appointment only, 7:30a-5:30pm. The fee for use is $4.50 an hour and must be paid when you drop your student at the klinic. Call 260-356-0123 for more questions.

 

Tips for everyone during this flu season.

  • Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • 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 surfaces or objects. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, 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.

With cold and flu season approaching, here are some helpful hints and reminders for staying healthy.

 

Just a reminder that students must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school without the aid of medication. If a student has been vomiting or having diarrhea the night before or in the morning please allow your student to stay home and rest. 

 

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that you take everyday actions to stay healthy this flu season.
    • Ways to stay healthy:
      • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
      • Wash your hands with soap and water. Alcohol-based hand rubs are also effective.
      • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way.
      • Stay home if you are sick. And limit contact with others to keep from infecting them.
      • Disinfect frequently touched surfaces like bedside tables, bathroom surfaces, children’s toys, door knobs, light switches and telephones.
