Back To School: Staying Healthy at School is as Easy as Learning Your ABC's
Date:8/24/2010

NORTH CANTON, Ohio, Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports that over 22 million school days are lost every year due to the common cold and on average children have between 6-10 colds per year.

Does it seem as if your child is sick all the time? In the early school years, your child's immune system is put to the test. After all, young children in large groups are breeding grounds for the organisms that cause illness. Here's why infectious illness is so common — and what your child can do to stay healthy in the classroom.

How Infections Spread

Many childhood illnesses are caused by viruses. All it takes is a single child to bring a virus to school for the spread to begin. Consider this common scenario — a child who is infected with a cold; coughs or sneezes in the classroom. The children sitting nearby inhale the infected respiratory droplets and the cold spreads. Or perhaps a child who has stomach virus uses the restroom and returns to the classroom without washing his or her hands. Illness causing germs might spread from the hard surfaces the sick child touches to other children who touch the same object and then put their fingers in their mouths or near their nose or eyes.

Washing Hands

Frequent hand washing is the simplest — and most effective — way to prevent illness, both at home and at school. Remind your child to wash his or her hands before eating and after using the restroom, blowing his or her nose, or playing outside. We recommend soaping up hands for as long as it takes to sing "Happy Birthday" followed by a thorough warm water rinse. If soap and water are not available, use an antimicrobial or antiseptic hand sanitizer as an alternative.

Common Sense Tips

In addition to frequent hand washing, using a little common sense can go a long way toward preventing illness in the classroom
