MSAD No. 75 has long been known for our excellence in providing a comprehensive school health program. Those efforts are led by Mary Booth, School Health Coordinator, and supported at each school in the district. Our Coordinated School Health Program is a proven, effective approach designed to increase and protect the health of students, staff, and families by maximizing resources and expertise of all stakeholders. This approach highlights prevention via education and collaboration, to support student health and academic success.
Below is a message from our School Health Coordinator:
Flu Season Is Coming Fast -
Will Yours Be A Few Minutes or Several Days?
Schools are a wonderful place for our children to gather and learn. With almost 3,000 students and staff present each day in our schools, it is amazing the things we can share. Some things we try not to share are bacteria and viruses.
The good news is there are a few things everyone can do to help minimize the spread of germs.
1. Practice Prevention - Get immunized.
2. Practice Cough / Sneeze Etiquette and Frequent Hand
3. Make Sure Anyone Who Is Sick Stays At Home
4. Boost Your Immune System
If you have more questions about influenza, flu shot clinics, or communicable diseases, please contact your school nurse.
Safety Tip: Put ICE in Your Cell Phone. ICE stands for “In Case of Emergency” and having it in a contact directory can help first responders know who to contact if you or a loved one is unconscious.
