Flu Epidemic Prevention Recommendations
Due to an increase in the number of cases of Strep and Flu this
year, we would like to remind you of the following guidelines:
Cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing
Frequently wash your hands and promote hand washing in the
family. Many students do not wash their hands as often as
they should and reinforcement of this at home is helpful.
Keep your child home if any one of the following occurs:
Vomiting within the last 24 hours.
Diarrhea within the last 24 hours.
Temperature of 100 or higher within the last 24 hours
without taking any fever medication.
Symptoms of acute illness, such as persistent cough, sore
throat or runny nose with body aches.
Abdominal pain or cramping, headache also with body aches.
Strep is suspected and you are awaiting the results of a
throat culture (Students who test positive for strep, may
return to school 24 hours after antibiotic treatment has
begun, as long as they meet the above criteria).
A sibling or parent has the flu and they do not feel right
but cannot explain what is wrong.
Your child should look and behave like him or herself for 24-48
hours before returning to school.
REMEMBER: Hand washing is the most effective means of preventing
the spread of communicable diseases!!!!
