FROM THE SCHOOL NURSE:  May is Allergy and Asthma Awareness Month!

You may have asthma or know someone who has asthma. Some people must take medication every day to prevent asthma attacks and some people take medication only when they feel they need it. Asthma is a chronic disease that causes your airways to become inflamed, making it hard to breathe. There is no cure for asthma. The best way to manage asthma is to avoid triggers, take medications to prevent symptoms and prepare to treat asthma episodes if they occur.

Encourage your child to wash their face and hands after playing outside. Making their bed in the morning will help reduce the pollen on their sheets and pillow when they go to bed at night. They should shower daily before bedtime to remove any pollen in their hair and on their body.
