Top Tips for Staying Healthy

Does it seem as if your child is sick all the time? In the early school years, your child’s immune system is put to the test.

Many childhood illnesses are caused by viruses and are spread easily from hand to mouth.

Why Hand Washing Counts

Frequent hand washing is one of the simplest — and most effective — ways to stay healthy in school. Remind your child to wash his or her hands before eating and after using the toilet, blowing his or her nose, or playing outside. Suggest soaping up for as long as it takes to sing the “Happy Birthday” song twice. If not able to wash their hands, using hand sanitizer is the best option.

Other School Health Tips

Common sense can go a long way toward staying healthy in school. In addition to frequent hand washing, encourage your child to follow these tips:
  • Other times to wash hands/use hand sanitizer: before eating snacks and after using a shared computer, pencil sharpener, water fountain or other community objects. .
  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Encourage your child to cough or sneeze into a tissue, then put the tissue in the trash, and wash his or her hands or use hand sanitizer. If it isn’t possible to reach a tissue in time, remind your child to cough or sneeze into the bend of his or her elbow.
  • Keep your hands away from your eyes and out of your mouth.Remind your child that hands are often covered in germs.
  • Don’t share water bottles, food or other personal items. Offer your child this simple rule: if you put the item in your mouth, keep it to yourself.
  • Get a yearly flu vaccine
  • Get plenty of sleep
  • Eat a healthy diet including lots of water
  • If you become sick, limit your contact with others to keep from infecting them.
Guidelines for Keeping Sick Children at Home
  • Fever in the past 24 hours (oral temperature should be below 100 F. for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication)
  • Vomiting or diarrhea in the past 24 hours
  • Infections requiring antibiotics need a physician note with date child may return to school

    What an exciting year for Fremont Elementary School! We are returning to school with an awesome veteran staff, as well as a few new faces this year to help serve our students. I am looking forward to working with students, teachers, support staff, parents and our community to continue to raise the bar in excellence.

    As a former student who walked through Fremont Elementary doors 29 years ago, I take great pride in everything I do with Fremont Community Schools because it is dear to my heart. A big component of my leadership style is teamwork and I put a high value on honesty, hard work and the desire to be a life long learner. I will passionately provide support, resources, and encouragement to all of our students and staff. As a team, we will continue to provide a learning environment that is stimulating, interesting, and truly inspiring for all students to critically think when they are problem solving.

    In addition, setting the tone of excellence is imperative and the importance of education is of great value and I will expect all students to try their best to learn and make good decisions, not only in the classroom but also outside as well. Furthermore, we want to strive to be the best we can be and be a part of a bigger picture as well when service opportunities arise to give back to those we know in our community. Our goals will be met by following the same motto as Fremont Middle School: Promote Respect, Foster Pride, and Inspire Excellence.

    As we move through the school year, I want our students to focus on learning and do their best every day, while also having fun. School is a time to meet new friends and make memories in the classroom, on the playground, or off campus. I challenge students to step up and help those classmates who need it, whether that is academically or socially. A kind heart and an open ear can go a long way and can have a positive impact on someone with these simple acts of kindness.

    As a team we can accomplish anything. Together, Fremont Elementary School will be the best school in the state and an example of exemplary education. No matter your role or capacity you have this year, be ready to take your part in building the foundation towards success.

    Your Principal,
    Mr. Eric Bryan
