A health reminder from the nurses

Health officials are cautioning us to take care in the prevention of COVID, flu, and RSV this season. Unfortunately, it is the season for these and other viruses. It is up to each of us to do everything possible to reduce the chance of getting sick as well as reduce the likelihood of spreading illness to others.

The health office strongly encourages the following prevention methods:

* Stay up to date on your vaccinations!  It’s not too late! Flu vaccinations are available for adults and children at the Tulsa County Health Department, at local pharmacies, or from most primary care physicians.  There are also many pharmacies and clinics offering the bivalent COVID booster shot.

* Wash your hands!  Practice good hygiene, washing your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds (the time it takes to sing the ABC song).

* Get your rest! Did you know 6-12 year olds should have 9-12 hours of sleep per night? Kids 13-18  year olds  need 8-10 hours and adults should have at least 7 hours.

* Eat a well-balanced diet!  Choose lots of vegetables, fruits and whole grains.  Limit salt, saturated fat and sugar.  A well fed body is better equipped to fight off infections.

* Stay hydrated! Among many other things, water helps regulate body temperature and prevent infections. Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink.  

* Stay home If you develop symptoms of the flu, strep throat, or a stomach virus, it is recommended that you contact your primary care physician, stay home, and follow your doctor’s orders to treat the symptoms before returning to school or work.

* Cover it!  Cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbow, not your hands.

Remember, students must be fever-free for 24 hours, without the aid of fever reducing medications, and feel well enough to attend before they may return to school.

Holland Hall’s greatest priority is the health and well-being of our community.  We never want a student to feel obligated to attend school when sick.  Administration and faculty are dedicated to assisting all students in making up missed assignments/tests due to illness.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out.  Thank you for doing your part to help our community stay healthy this season!

Your school nurses,
Kathleen Alabbasi and Kimberly Seabolt

This event is open to all members of the Holland Hall community, but attendance is required for all juniors and seniors.  

Students should wear church-appropriate clothing: a sports coat or sweater for men and modest attire for ladies. (no jeans)

The service begins at 5 p.m., but students must be checked in with their Deans and in their assigned seating by at least 4:40 p.m.
