COLD & FLU PREVENTION TIPS
COLD & FLU PREVENTION TIPS
Cold and flu season is here & prevention should always be a top priority for our families. Here are some great cold and flu prevention tips that that will hopefully keep everyone healthy this flu season:
- WASH YOUR HANDS for at least 20 seconds with soap and water OR use alcohol based hand sanitizers.
- Don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth with your hands between washing them.
- If your doctor recommends it, get a flu shot for your entire family. It’s fast, easy and effective.
- Don’t share food, drinks, lip balm or toothbrushes with anyone, even family members. Germs can spread!
- Avoid kissing on the lips if you feel yourself getting sick. *This can be especially hard with young children, but try to refrain. Also, try to avoid letting people touch your baby’s hands as well.
- Clean doorknobs, bathrooms and children’s toys with disinfecting cleaner often.
- Yogurt has been shown to stimulate production of an immune system substance that fights disease. So, eat up!
- Let fresh air into your home at least 1x week even if it is extremely cold outside. Studies have shown that the air inside your home is 2 to 5 times worse than the air outside. Allowing fresh air in will help to get stale, unhealthy air out.
- Get plenty of sleep and drink plenty of water so that your body will be able to fight off illness.
- STAY HOME IF YOU ARE SICK! No need to spread your germs to others. If you do end-up with a cold…
- Eventually, someone in your family WILL end-up with a cold or flu. Be sure the sick person gets plenty of rest and try some of these great natural cold remedies to help them feel better faster:
- Increase your vitamin C intake to 1,000 mg/day to help boost your immune system and shorten your cold.
- Zinc lozenges taken every 2 hours have been shown to help shorten a cold.
- Stay hydrated with non-caffeinated drinks and use a humidifier to keep nasal passages moist.
- Get plenty of rest! Overdoing it will only prolong your illness.
- Eat chicken soup. Studies suggest that the ingredients in chicken soup have anti-inflammatory properties.
- Don’t sniff! Blow your nose often to remove mucus from your head. *Also, remember to not leave dirty tissues around and wash your hands after blowing to avoid spreading your germs to others.
- Gargle 4 to 5 times a day with warm water + a teaspoon of salt to help relieve a sore throat.
- Take a steamy shower. The moist heat will help clear and soothe congested nasal passages.
- Apply hot or cold washcloths to eye area to relieve congested sinuses. *Wet washcloth and put in microwave for a few seconds for heat or in the freezer for cold. BE SURE TO TEST THE TEMPERATURE BEFORE APPLYING TO YOUR FACE.
- Elevate your head with extra pillows to help with drainage. CAUTION: If you have an infant or small child, DO NOT place pillows in the crib. This is a serious SIDS risk!
Revised calendar: Snow make-up days move last day of school to June 21
- Revised school-year calendar (Feb. 13, 2017)
Snow and icy conditions closed schools on Feb. 6 and 7, 2017. We have adjusted the school year calendar to make up those days. We had one make-up day built in on Friday, May 26; students will go to school on that day. The last day of school has been pushed back one day to Wednesday, June 21.
Thank you for your flexibility, and cross your fingers for no more snow this winter!

Spike in flu cases: Keep kids home if sick!
Winter health reminders
Public Health officials are warning of a spike in flu activity this month—in fact, the number of people in hospital emergency departments with flu-like illnesses to-date is more than for the previous five years at this time of year, and we have not peaked yet. Please make sure to wash your hands frequently and get a flu shot, especially if you’re part of a vulnerable population (people with asthma, diabetes, heart disease …). To keep our school community healthy, please keep children home from school for at least 24 hours AFTER they have a fever or signs of a fever, without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.
Also be aware that a mumps outbreak recently occurred in south King County and pertussis is circulating through the community. It is critical for the health and safety of our students that everyone who attends a Tukwila school is up to date on his or her vaccinations. You will soon receive a letter from your school nurse if your student is out of compliance; there are many community resources that will provide the needed vaccinations in one visit for free or an affordable cost. Contact your school nurse if you have questions.
