There has been an increase in the number of students and faculty ill with the Flu. If your child has been diagnosed with any illness , please report it to the school. We are trying to track and prevent illness.

There are everyday actions you can take to stop the spread of influenza!

  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.

  • While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible with others to keep from infecting them.

  • If you are sick with flu-like illness, please stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone (without the use of fever-reducing medications) except to get medical care or for other necessities.

  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.

  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.
