Because protection from all respiratory viruses are similar, this is a good time to review strategies we can all use to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, such as the flu:
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Stay home when you are sick, and keep sick children home as well.
Cover your cough or sneeze, then immediately discard any tissues.
Clean and disinfect frequently-touched objects and surfaces.
Heritage Academy staff also take these precautions inside of our classrooms in order to ensure a healthy learning environment for your children.
We will keep you updated with any developments that could impact our families or schools.
If you have any questions, please contact the school.
