Here are some tips to stay healthy during this time of flu season.

Frequent hand-washing is one of the simplest — and most effective — ways to prevent the spread of germs. We suggest soaping up for as long as it takes to sing the “Happy Birthday” song twice. Remember to wash your hands:

Before eating food

After using the bathroom

After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing

Common sense can go a long way toward staying healthy in school. In addition to frequent hand-washing, you should

  • Use hand sanitizer.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.Keep your hands away from your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Steer clear of colds.

Attention What So Cool About Manufacturing students, please meet in Mr. Malkasian’s room, F111, this afternoon at Lunch. There will be a quick meeting to discuss the final details of our editing.
