SISD Health Update and Response to the Ebola Virus

The safety and health of our students is always a top priority.  The recent health concerns related to the Ebola Virus may, understandably, cause some distress among our community. Please know that Sunnyvale ISD is in communication with Dallas County health officials and is working with the Town of Sunnyvale to respond to this issue. There is currently no reason to believe that the situation presents a health concern to Sunnyvale ISD students, faculty or staff members.
In an effort to maintain wellness in our schools, we have begun implementation of the following procedures:

1.  Screening of all visitors through use of a wellness questionnaire,

2.  Educating our nurses and staff with CDC virus facts, symptoms, and prevention,

3.  Maintaining clean and healthy learning environments, through routine use of institutional-grade cleaning supplies by trained personnel, with the addition of enhanced disinfectant precautions, and

4.  Communicating any concerns or issues to our community.

To provide you with the latest helpful information, the district has created a new SISD Health Updates website with resources.  A special “SISD Health Comment Card” is available for parents and community members to submit questions. Responses will  be posted in our new SISD Health Updates Blog. Please view our website to locate both. More...

News From the Nurse

FLU Season will arrive soon. Be prepared! Get your flu shot ASAP. It has been proven that a yearly flu shot not only can prevent flu but also decreases the number of colds a person may have per year. 

Just a reminder: if a student is vomiting, has a fever, severe cough or a rash they should not be at school. They must be fever-free for 24 hours before returning to school. If they have a sore throat and/or an upper respiratory infection and the doctor prescribes an antibiotic they should be on the antibiotic for a full 24 hours before returning to school.
