Health Information

Students learn best when they are healthy. The St. Louis Catholic School Clinic promotes and protects the health of students and staff in the school. Students are encouraged to develop good health habits that will last a lifetime. It is the school nurse's goal to identify and provide support for health conditions that adversely impact learning. The school nurse is available at St. Louis School every day and can be reached by email at kmitchell@stlouisschool.org or 703-768-7732.

When to Keep Your Child at Home
If your child wakes up in the morning with a headache, stomach ache, or generally not feeling well, please keep them home. You may bring your child in at a later time, if he/she is feeling better.

KEEP THEM HOME IF THEY HAVE A FEVER, VOMITING, DIARRHEA. Children must remain home for 24 hours after being fever free without the aid of fever reducing medicine and 24 hours after the last episode of vomiting or diarrhea in order to prevent spreading illness to classmates and other students.

Good Handwashing Will Keep Germs Away
Please remind your child to wash hands before and after eating, after sneezing, coughing, and after bathroom use. Remember to wash with soap and water AND for 20 seconds (sing Happy Birthday while washing hands).
