Message from Nurse Meagan

Whew that tree pollen...am I right??? Spring is fully in swing! If your child is anything like me, spring allergy symptoms are really wreaking havoc right now (sneezing, runny nose, itchy/watery eyes, nose, throat, ears). Make sure your kids are taking their daily allergy medication if they suffer from seasonal allergies. Allergies can also trigger asthma symptoms, so likewise, make sure your kids are taking their asthma *controller* medications per their asthma action plans (green zone medications) to keep asthma symptoms under control.

Here at school, I have an eyewash solution to help sooth eye symptoms. I also instruct kids to wash their face and front of their hair with a damp paper towel after coming inside to minimize any pollen that may have collected on their head. This is a great tip for at home as well. It is also important to teach kids to not rub their eyes as this can introduce bacteria to the eyes, increase the risk for pink eye, and make eyes more swollen and tender. Here is are two pollen count sites for monitoring:
