Cold and flu season is here. To ensure a healthy learning environment for your student and their teacher this season, here are a few guidelines that should be followed:
- Fever of 100 degrees or greater – students should stay home and be fever free for 24 hours without fever-reducing medication before returning to school.
- Vomiting – students should stay home and be vomit free, without medication, for 24 hours before returning to school.
- Diarrhea – if a student has three or more loose stools, they should stay home and be symptom-free, without medication, for 24 hours before returning to school.
- Sore Throat/Cough/Running Nose – if a student has excessive coughing and discharge they should stay home until symptoms lessen. If any of these are accompanied by a fever, students should stay home until fever-free for 24 hours.

Buckeye Trail Elementary School, Buckeye Trail Middle School, and Buckeye Trail High School were all recently recognized as Purple Star Schools by the Ohio Department of Education.
The Purple Star designation recognizes schools that meet important criteria for serving military-connected students and families. Since the initiative’s inception, many schools have far exceeded these requirements and, as a Purple Star designee, schools are encouraged to continually seek better ways to communicate, support, and serve students.
“I am pleased to inform you that the Ohio Department of Education selected Buckeye Trail Elementary School, Buckeye Trail Middle School, and Buckeye Trail High School as a 2020 Purple Star designees. We applaud and appreciate your outstanding commitment to serving military-connected students and families in your schools,” said Paolo De Maria, Superintendent of Public Instruction. “Each Child, Our Future, Ohio’s strategic plan for education, recognizes the importance of supporting the needs of the whole child. To be successful in school and when transitioning between school settings, Ohio’s military-connected youth require particular supports to ensure that their unique social, emotional and academic needs are met.”
East Guernsey Local Schools is proud to support Ohio’s military families!
