Ferris Elementary School

A COMMUNITY OF LEARNERS THAT DEMONSTRATE H.E.A.R.T. EACH DAY!

Measles Information from Vancouver Coastal Health

Parents--the attached information from Vancouver Coastal Health about measles was already emailed.

We ask that parents  follow our Cold/Flu Season requests (in our February Flyer under newsletters).

We are asking for your support to maintain the health of all staff and students by keeping your child home when they are ill. Their recovery will be sped up when they have the opportunity to

rest at home. A proper sleep and breakfast are essential to ensure children function well at school. Parents will be contacted to take their children home if their teacher feels they are not well

enough to attend class. Children should be kept home if they have any of the following symptoms:

• Fever over 38C

• Diarrhea and/or vomiting in the previous 48 hours

• A rash that has not yet been diagnosed

• Blister like sores that have not yet been diagnosed

• Cough, runny nose and sore throat

Please help us ensure the well-being of our Ferris community by ensuring your child is healthy before they return to school following an illness. Thank you.
