Morning Announcements for 1/17/20

Good Morning WJHS! Here are your announcements for Friday, January 17th Day 2 of the 6 day cycle. 


Nurse Debbie wants to remind everyone that we are in the middle of cold and flu season!

Please follow these simple steps to help stop the spread of germs that make you sick:

1). Remember to wash your hands frequently: before and after eating; and especially after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose! When there is no sink nearby; use hand sanitizer!

2). Keep your sneezes and coughs to yourself! Make sure you sneeze or cough into your elbow or in a tissue. This will help stop the spread of germs!

3). Don’t touch your eyes or mouth. If you touch a surface that has a cold or flu virus on it and touch your face; you can get sick!  So, don’t touch your face!

4). Try to eat nutritious meals and drink plenty of fluids!

And, lastly…

5). Talk to your parent about getting the flu shot!

Thank you, Nurse Debbie!
