Help FIGHT THE FLU at school!
Influenza is more than just a cold, with common symptoms that include a cough and congestion, fever (often high), headache (often severe), and body aches.
The problem with influenza at school is how very easily it is spread from one person to the next, either in respiratory droplets from coughs and sneezes, or direct contact from contaminated surfaces. Cough into your sleeve. Wash your hands often.
If your child complains of not feeling well, please check their temperature before leaving for school. Children with a temperature of 100 degrees or higher should not be sent to school.
A child should not return to school until he/she has been fever free (less than 100.0) for 24 hours without the use of a fever-reducing medicine, (such as Tylenol or Motrin), he/she is feeling well enough to benefit from being at school, and his/her cough and secretions are manageable. This may take several days if the child has influenza.
If your child is diagnosed with influenza please report those results to the school secretary or nurse when you report the absence so we can continue to monitor for any outbreaks in our building.
