Message from Nurse Michelle
Owing to the high level of upper respiratory illness (URTI) in Hong Kong we are closely monitoring absentee numbers here in school. If your child is displaying any of the following symptoms please keep them at home. URTI symptoms could include but are not limited to fever (>37.5 forehead skin temp), nasal congestion, runny nose, sneezing, sore throat, cough, headache, muscle aches, generalised malaise.
Please inform the school if your child is unwell and state the specific symptoms for their absence. If your child has seen a Doctor please provide us with the Doctor’s certificate.
Students should be fever / symptom free (without medication) for 48 hours before they can return to school. We appreciate your help with this matter.
Note from Mr Garnett
Regarding the ESF App to record your child’s temperature. Unfortunately the ESF system does not support having additional adults able to input the information e.g Aunty, Helper etc. You do still have the option of downloading the sheet (see earlier post in my blog) and writing the information on the form and having your child bring this to school.
