WILLS POINT ISD
Even though there is no danger from the Ebola virus in Wills Point at this time, Wills Point ISD always takes a proactive approach. The health and safety of our students and staff is our first priority. Our school nurses are educated on the signs and symptoms and protocols related to the Ebola virus, and are prepared to manage any potential health situation. Employees have been trained and re-trained on Blood Borne Pathogens and good hygiene practices. We also want to take this opportunity to remind you of policies and protocols that are always in place to assist in keeping students healthy and safe and to help prevent the spread of illness within our schools. Please be reminded of the following:
* We will isolate students who have symptoms of contagious illness and call parents immediately
* If a student has fever, they must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school (this means without the use of fever reducing medication)
* If a student has diarrhea, they must be diarrhea free for 24 hours before returning to school (this means without the use of diarrhea suppressing medication)
* A student must not come to school if vomiting 2 or more times in 24 hours. A student should have 1 or 2 meals without vomiting before returning to school
If I can answer questions or help in any other way, please do not hesitate to give me a call.
