The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and sometimes the lungs.  The best way to prevent the flu is by getting a flu vaccine each year.  The Center for Disease Control states that it is important to get a flu vaccination each year.  The CDC also recommends everyday preventive actions (like staying away from people who are sick, covering coughs and sneezes and frequent handwashing) to help slow the spread of germs that cause respiratory (nose, throat, and lungs) illnesses, like flu.  Making healthy choices at school and at home can help prevent the flu and spreading flu to others.

Male student holding Back-To-School Checklist including Eye Exam, Binder, Spiral Notebook, Pencils, and EraserDid you know August is National Eye Exam Month?  August is dedicated to the importance of eye health and safety. Although the summer is quickly coming to an end, the UV Rays are still high and it’s important to take proper precautions to protect yourself from the sun, make sure you are wearing proper eyewear to protect your vision.  As we prepare to return to the classrooms, now is a great time to schedule your family’s routine eye exams.  Vision should be checked annually during the grade school years. Fortunately, most problems that surface during this time can be remedied by wearing eyeglasses.  For more information, check out Healthy Essentials from Johnson & Johnson.
