Noxon School was just informed of a staff member being diagnosed with bacterial meningitis. Public Health was notified and they will reach out if the school needs to take any further precautions. They did want to remind everyone to wash your hands, stay home if sick, and read attached CDC meningitis information. Meningitis symptoms include sudden onset of: Fever Headache Stiff neck There are often other symptoms, such as: Nausea Vomiting Photophobia (eyes being more sensitive to light) Altered mental status (confusion) Newborns and babies may not have, or it may be difficult to notice the classic symptoms listed above. Instead, babies may: Be slow or inactive Be irritable Vomit Feed poorly Have a bulging fontanelle (the “soft spot” on a baby’s head) Have abnormal reflexes If you think your baby or child has any of these symptoms, call the doctor right away. Typically, symptoms of bacterial meningitis develop within 3 to 7 days after exposure; note, this is not true for TB meningitis, which can develop much later after exposure to the bacteria. Anyone who thinks they may have meningitis should see a doctor as soon as possible. https://www.cdc.gov/meningitis/bacterial.html
Last week HOSA students attended the State Leadership Conference in Billings. They competed in individual and team events. Callie Cano and Elloria Jensen placed 2nd in their Health Education event. We learned so much and can't wait to attend next year.

HOSA (Health Occupation Students of America) Week is in November. In honor of that HOSA students have sent thank you cards to local hospitals as an act of GRATITUDE, they have taken blood pressures at a local bazaar and senior center as an act of PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT, and finally they helped out at the Noxon Senior Citizen Center as an act of SERVICE! So proud of these future health professionals and leaders!
HOSA is at it again! They sold coffee and hot cocoa bombs at the PTO Christmas Bazaar as their first fundraiser. They also took blood pressures and provided education about the result as a professional development activity! Healthcare professionals in the making!
