The Flu a Guide for Parents

There have been several students in our district that have tested positive for influenza. It is a very contagious infection and we want you to be aware of the ways to prevent the spread of it and when to keep your child home if they become sick. It is school district #381 policy that a student should be kept home if they have a fever over 100 degrees and should remain home until they are fever free (without the use of medications) for 24 hours. It is not too late to receive an influenza vaccine from your primary health care provider. I have attached a parent information sheet about the flu. Please call me if you have any questions or concerns.
