Pink Eye (conjunctivitis) is making the rounds!

Dear Parents,

Please watch your children for the following signs and symptoms of pink eye (conjunctivitis):

Redness, itching, and/or burning of the eye
Discharge from the eye that is either thick or watery
Slightly swollen eyelids
Eyelashes that are stuck together with matter when the child awakens in the morning

If you child has any of the signs/symptoms mentioned above, please keep your child home, consult with your family doctor, and obtain treatment as needed. Generally, students with infectious conjunctivitis cannot return to school until 24 hours after treatment begins.

Prevention: Careful hand washing is important in preventing the spread of the infection. Children should also have their own towel and washcloth.

If you have any questions, please call me at 278-5333
