Nurses' Corner: Flu in the metroplex.

To Godley ISD Parents and Guardians:

As you are aware, the flu season is upon us.  We wanted to assure you that district officials have been monitoring the flu situation in our area very closely. While our attendance numbers are below normal, the flu has not affected Godley ISD as hard as other communities. We recognize that some students and parents may experience heightened anxiety because of some districts closing.

Godley ISD currently uses a disinfectant fogging procedure to proactively safeguard district facilities. Elevated sanitation procedures on all campuses on commonly used areas such as bathrooms, student desks, water fountains, and handrails are presently in effect. We also disinfect all busses on a regular basis. Godley ISD will implement an enhanced cleaning procedure for all campuses, which will continue through the end of the flu season. Custodians will start to “deep clean” and thoroughly disinfect all campuses using professional-grade cleaning equipment and chemicals. GISD also contracts with Germblast; a comprehensive environmental disinfection program proven to reduce illness and infection. All GISD campuses provide hand sanitizer stations and to students upon request.

We would also like to remind parents that flu prevention is a team effort. The Center for Disease Control recommends all children receive a flu vaccine for best prevention. Please remind your children of the importance of frequent hand washing, keeping their hands out of their mouths, and refraining from sharing food and drinks.

As always, Godley ISD will communicate any updates and potential measures that need to be taken through the district website and social media feeds. We will remain in contact with our local and health department officials as we monitor this situation.

Thank you for your continued patience, understanding and support as we work to keep our students and staff as safe and healthy as possible.

Sincerely,


Godley ISD Administration
