Flu Symptoms Begin to Spread Around Campus - January 23, 2020

Flu Vaccine
We are currently seeing a small increase in the flu on campus. There are many students exhibiting symptoms, but testing negative. Please be mindful of the school policy. If your student has a fever of 100 or more, vomiting, or diarrhea, please keep them at home. They should not return to school until 24 hours have passed of being symptom-free. This protects the health of our student body, which in return helps protect your home from illness. Remember hand hygiene is the most important factor in preventing the spread of illness among our students.

2019 School Nurse ConferenceSan Augustine Health Services Attends School Nurse Conference
This summer, the San Augustine healthcare team attended the 2019 School Nurse Conference at UT Health in Tyler, TX. The role of a school nurse becomes more complicated with each passing year; the demands placed upon the healthcare team are often complex and challenging. The annual School Nurse Conference helps nurses prepare for the challenges they will face throughout the upcoming school year. The following are topics that were discussed at this year's program.
  • Forensic Nursing - Myth vs. Realities of Caring for Victims of Violent Crimes
  • Good Posture and Body Mechanics
  • Playground and Sports Injuries
  • Vaping & Juuling
  • New Abused Substances
  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Immunization Updates
This is a terrific resource for networking with other schools and nurses. The healthcare team is ready and knowledgeable with the newest information needed to start a new school year. We know that protecting and promoting the health of your children is of critical importance and we are excited to start the 2019-2020 school year.
