Flu Season is Upon Us! Prevention is key!

There are already schools in the area with 10% of students out with influenza-like illness. (fevers, achy, some with coughs).  Please take an extra few minutes to wash your hands for 20 seconds, using sanitizer when blowing (or picking) noses, etc.   If you have a fever or other signs of influenza, you really need to stay home and rest, push the fluids, and be fever free for 24hrs without Tylenol or ibuprofen before returning to school/work.  Please contact your school when your child is out sick and let them know why your child is out (fever/cough/vomiting/etc), because we do have to track illnesses and report to the state if greater than 10% out with the same symptoms.    Please contact your school nurse with any questions.   Thank you!

Fingers crossed we can stay ahead of this!!!flu
