REMINDER FROM THE HEALTH OFFICE

As things settle down to a routine following the busy activities of winter break and our
recent “snow days,” parents are reminded to regularly check their children for the presence
of head lice. The Center for Disease Control has detailed, up-to-date information on head
lice, including identification of cases, treatment, and prevention. The CDC website can be
accessed at:
http://www.cdc.gov/lice/head/index.html.
In addition, the Health Services page of the District 64 website features a link to a new
Podcast from the CDC, entitled “Talk About Nit-Picking!”

IMPORTANT UPDATE ABOUT MRSA INFECTIONS

Infections caused by MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) remain an ongoing
problem in our society; news stories periodically draw our attention to outbreaks and highlight the
need for continuing vigilance. We would like to take this opportunity to refresh your understanding
of MRSA, and review tips on how you can help us prevent and control the spread of these infections.

What is MRSA? Staphylococcus aureus, often referred to simply as “staph,” is a bacterium that is
commonly carried on the skin or in the nose of healthy people. Sometimes, staph bacteria can cause
infections; in fact, staph bacteria are one of the most common causes of skin infections in the United
States. However, some staph bacteria, such as MRSA, are resistant to certain types of antibiotics. Most
MRSA infections are skin infections that may appear as pustules or boils that often are red, swollen,
painful, or have pus or other drainage. These skin infections commonly occur at sites of visible skin
trauma, such as cuts and abrasions, and areas of the body covered by hair.

How is it transmitted? MRSA is usually transmitted by direct skin-to-skin contact or contact with
shared items or surfaces that have come into contact with someone else’s infection (e.g., towels and
razors). Individuals who believe they may have a staph infection or MRSA infection should contact
their medical provider for evaluation and appropriate treatment.

How can we control its spread? Practicing good hygiene – at home and school – is one of the most
important things that we all can do to control the spread of staph and other infections.
! Keep hands clean by frequently washing with soap and water, or using an alcohol-based hand
sanitizer.
! Keep cuts and scrapes covered with a clean bandage until healed.
! Avoid contact with other people’s wounds or bandages.
! Avoid sharing personal items that directly touch the body, such as towels, razors and water
bottles.
! Keep fingernails clean and clipped short.
! See a medical provider for a skin infection that is not getting better.
! Maintain a clean environment by establishing cleaning procedures for frequently touched
surfaces that come into direct contact with people’s skin.

8!
Students participating in contact sports or other activities that lead to close skin-to-skin contact
should take additional precautions related to skin infections and hygiene:
! Do not share towels, clothing, or uniforms.
! Shower as soon as possible after practice or games are over; do not share bar soap.
! Keep equipment clean.
! Wash dirty uniforms, practice clothing, and used towels with hot water and laundry
detergent.
! Using a hot dryer, rather than air-drying, also helps kill bacteria.
! Report any cuts, abrasions, or wounds to the coach, PE teacher, and school nurse.

In District 64, we practice Universal Precautions, and take every measure to evaluate students and
staff who have any type of skin lesion. Skin rashes and wounds may require medical evaluation and
physician documentation regarding treatment and contagiousness. In addition, we follow guidelines
from the Illinois Department of Public Health, as well as Cook County Department of Public Health
regarding the prevention, surveillance, treatment, and reporting of MRSA infections. Finally, our
schools have a plan in place to routinely clean and disinfect commonly used areas or frequently
touched surfaces, regardless of the threat of MRSA.

How can you find out more about MRSA? We offer links to other helpful information about MRSA
and other topics related to student health on the Health and Safety Tips page of the District 64
website: http://d64.org/page.php?pid=350

Please feel free to contact your building health assistant or me with any questions or concerns.

Dear Franklin Families,

It’s not too late to donate prizes for the Winterfest raffle!

Some examples of past donations were sporting goods/clothing, toys, gift
certificates, sporting event tickets, books, videos, and electronic items.
Cash donations are welcome, which we will put towards purchasing prizes.

Please drop off donations at the school office and be sure to sign the
donation log so we know whom to thank. If it is more convenient,
I will gladly pick up donations from your home.

We greatly appreciate any donation as Winterfest proceeds go towards
initiatives that benefit our children. Thank you so much in advance!
