From the Health Office. We continue to experience elevated numbers of students out with illness, including illness caused by influenza A. Some children with the flu are out for multiple (5-7) days, so please plan accordingly. In addition, some children have been dismissed from school due to a clustering of flu-like symptoms without a fever. Such flu-like symptom clusters may include sudden and unexplained fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea or stomach pains, persistent cough or sore throat, headache and lightheadedness, and an achy body. For further care direction or concerns about your child's symptoms, please consult your health care provider. Thank you for doing your part and keeping children home if they are ill. Please remember, students should stay home for 24 hours after a fever has passed without fever-reducing medication. Finally, your student should also feel well enough to participate in all of the day's activities, including recess.
