Important Points About Influenza in Our Community:

  • Sick persons should remain at home away from other people and not return to school or work for 24 hours after the fever is gone, without the aid of fever reducing medications.
  • Parents should call the attendance line everyday.  Be specific about the signs of illness (fever plus either cough or sore throat).
  • Your school's registered nurse is a great resource for credible influenza information.

Preventative Measures

  • Wash hands frequently
  • Cover coughs and sneezes (cough into your inner elbow).
  • Stay home when sick. Remain at home until fever is gone for 24 hours, without Advil or Tylenol.
  • Stay away from people who are sick.  Keep a distance of 6 feet from anyone who is coughing, sneezing or feverish
  • Keep hands away from eyes, nose and mouth
  • Vaccination is the best protection against contracting the flu
