The nurses in the School Health Center are seeing an increase of children coming to school with fever. Flu season is here. If your child does not feel well during the night or in the morning, please check their temperature. If it is 38.0 celsius or higher they must remain at home. Please do not send them to school even if they have had medication and are feeling better. If your child does not have fever, please let us know by email that they were not feeling well and we can check on them. Proper hand washing at home and school, is the number one way to prevent spread of illness.
Reminder: UNIS Hanoi policy for sick children
If your child is sick and has fever, please keep them at home and notify the School Health Centre. It is imperative that the child remain at home for 24 hours after the fever has stopped. They must not have had any form of fever reducing medication for 24 hours before returning to class.
