H1N1 Information

Remain Alert!

We are now heading into the seasonal flu months, so everyone should continue to use common sense, wash hands often and stay home if you have flu-like symptoms.

Remember an influenza-like illness is considered when one develops a fever of 100.0 degrees or greater and cough, sore throat or body aches. Parents, please continue to "check in" with your child every morning and if you suspect they are not feeling well take their temperature.  If they have a temperature of 100.0 or more without Tylenol or ibuprofen they need to remain at home until they are fever free for 24 hours without the use of those fever reducing medications and they are feeling well.  If your child is sent home from school due to a fever of 100.0 degrees or more, they should not return to school the next day unless their return is approved by the district nurse.
