Cold, Flu, and Disease Prevention Tips


Cold, Flu, and Disease Prevention Tips
By Carolyn Riley, District Nurse, Health Specialist


Recently, Dr. Sara Cody, Santa Clara County Health Officer, said the best thing you can do to help prevent you, your child, and others from catching and spreading diseases is "wash your hands with soap and water, keep your children home from school if they are sick, cover your coughs, and avoid close contact with sick people." If you only remember one thing, it is that thorough hand washing with soap and water is the SINGLE most effective method of preventing the spread of disease.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend following the steps below to prevent catching and spreading cold, flu, and other diseases such as enterovirus (EV-D68):

  1. Wash hands with soap and water frequently, including after using the restroom.
    Alcohol-based hand cleaners do not kill enteroviruses.
  2. Avoid touching eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  3. Cover your cough.
  4. Stay home of you are sick.
  5. Get a flu shot, since the flu can cause serious respiratory illness

Your child needs to stay home from school when he or she has:

  • Any contagious disease.
  • Nausea or vomiting in the past 24 hours.
  • Fever over 100 degrees in the past 24 hours without fever reducing medication.
  • Frequent coughing or very runny nose.
  • Diarrhea in the past 24 hours.
  • Persistent sore throat, earache or severe headache.
  • Skin rash (must be diagnosed by health care provider).
  • Open, draining sores unless can be covered and contained by a dressing.


Recent media reports have heightened awareness about EV-D68 and Ebola. There are no cases of Ebola in Santa Clara County or California. On October 17, the Santa Clara County Public Health Department confirms: “There is no Ebola in Santa Clara County, and the risk to the residents is low.”


Enteroviruses are a very common kind of virus, but the D68 strain can cause mild cold like symptoms to severe respiratory illness in some patients, particularly those who are young and have asthma. If your child has cold like symptoms and has asthma or difficulty breathing, make sure to contact your health care provider without delay. Information for parents on EV-D68 can be accessed at

Resfrío, Gripe y Consejos para prevenir Enfermedades
Por Carolyn Riley, Especialista de la Salud, Enfermera del Distrito


Recientemente, la Dra. Sara Cody, Agente de Salud del Condado de Santa Clara, dijo que lo mejor que Ud. puede hacer para ayudarse a sí mismo, a su hijo/a y a otros a prevenir enfermedades y contagiarse es “lavarse las manos con agua y jabón, mantener a sus niños en sus hogares sin asistir a la escuela si ellos están enfermos, cubrirse la boca al toser y evitar contacto cercano con personas enfermas. "Si Ud. recuerda solamente una cosa, es que lavarse minuciosamente las manos con agua y jabón es el ÚNICO método eficaz de prevenir la propagación de la enfermedad.


Los Centros de Control y Prevención de Enfermedades  (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention /CDC por sus siglas) recomiendan seguir los siguientes pasos para prevenir el contagio y la propagación del resfrío, gripe y otras enfermedades tales como el enterovirus (EV-D68):

  1. Lavarse las manos con agua y jabón frecuentemente, incluyendo después de ir al baño.
    Los desinfectantes para manos a base de alcohol no matan los enterovirus.
  2. Evitar tocarse los ojos, nariz o boca con las manos sucias.
  3. Cubrirse la boca al toser.
  4. Quedarse en casa cuando está enfermo/a.
  5. Vacunarse contra la gripe, ya que la gripe puede causar serias enfermedades respiratorias.

Su hijo/a necesita quedarse en casa sin ir a la escuela cuando él/ella tiene:

  • Alguna enfermedad contagiosa.
  • Nausea o vómito durante las últimas 24 horas.
  • Fiebre más alta de 100 grados en las últimas 24 horas y tiene que tomar medicamento para reducir la fiebre.
  • Frecuente tos o mucho moqueo nasal.
  • Diarrea en las últimas 24 horas.
  • Continuo dolor de garganta, dolor de oído o fuerte dolor de cabeza.
  • Ronchas en la piel (debe ser diagnosticado por un médico).
  • Llagas abiertas o drenando a menos que puedan ser cubiertas con un apósito/vendaje.


Recientes informes de los medios de comunicación han aumentado la concientización acerca del EV-D68 y del Ebola. No existen casos de Ebola en el Condado de Santa Clara o en California.  El 17 de octubre, el Departamento de Salud Pública del Condado de Santa Clara,  confirma: “No hay casos de Ebola en el Condado de Santa Clara y el riesgo para los residentes es bajo.”


Los enterovirus son un tipo de virus muy común, pero en algunos pacientes, la cepa del D68 puede causar síntomas desde leve catarro hasta serias enfermedades respiratorias,  particularmente en jóvenes que padecen de asma.  Si su hijo/a tiene síntomas parecidos al catarro y tiene asma o dificultades para respirar, asegúrese de comunicarse con su proveedor de la salud sin ningún retraso. Información para padres acerca del EV-D68 puede encontrarla en el siguiente sitio web

The 49ers STEM

Leadership Institute Comes to Cabrillo


When I’m showing people around Cabrillo Middle School (CMS) for the first time, I try not to boast too much about the solidarity of the staff, the beautifully remodeled campus, the highest test scores in the school’s history or the six-year WASC Accreditation (Western Association of Schools and Colleges), but sometimes I slip and brag a little.


Apparently, some of my immodesty drifted toward Levi’s Stadium, where the 49ers discussed our accomplishments with one of their sponsors, Chevron. These two corporate giants got together with the Silicon Valley Education Foundation (SVEF) and the Santa Clara Unified School District (SCUSD) and decided that CMS was the perfect location for the creation of the 49ers STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Leadership Institute.


Sixty Students from the SCUSD will be selected every year to participate in the Institute. This six-year program will inspire and prepare students with high academic potential to pursue STEM majors at top-tier universities and become future leaders in their fields. In addition to enriched math and science instruction, students have regular access to the Chevron STEMZone, a tech lab equipped with a laser cutter, 3D printers and other fabrication tools. They also participate in STEM events and challenges, and apply their knowledge to solve problems in their community. As the school year progresses, all CMS students will have the opportunity to access this amazing facility.


The 49ers STEM Leadership Institute was built on CMS’s foundation of academic success, acceptance of diversity, a warm nurturing environment and playfulness. I think that if Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo was still alive, he’d dock his ship the San Salvador off the coast, make his way to CMS by land and spend the day playing ball with the UWOC-PL (United Wifflers Of Cabrillo – Pavement League).
