Influenza Season Updates
As Flu season approaches, be aware of flu symptoms: fever, headache, fatigue, cough, sore throat, and body aches. Use hand hygiene and promote it among staff/students. Cover cough and sneezes with a tissue or sleeve, and stay home when sick. Routinely clean and disinfect commonly used areas and frequently touched surfaces, whether or not anyone has influenza in your class. Many bacteria and viruses can live on surfaces for some time - including those that cause flu.
Flu Symptom Screening Tool For Parents/Guardians
Use this questionnaire each day your child is sick with flu-like symptoms and follow the instructions for when to keep the child home and what to tell the child's school.
Does your child have:
1. Fever of 100 degrees F or higher? Yes or No
2. Sore throat? Yes or No
3. Cough? Yes or No
Should I Keep My Child Home?
- If you checked "yes" for fever AND one of the other symptoms, keep your child home for at least 24 hours after his or her fever is gone without fever-reducing medicine. For many children this will be 5 to 7 days. your child should feel well enough to participate in school before returning. If you have questions about your child's health or symptoms, call your child's doctor or clinic
- If your child has been diagnosed by a doctor or clinic with a different disease, such as strep, follow your doctor's recommendation and school policy for when to return to school.
