We are seeing a recent spike in the number of flu cases reported to us. The health department advice is to stay home fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications before returning to school to prevent the spread of flu. Flu shot, hand washing and staying home are the best preventive tools we have. If your child reports not feeling good in the morning, please check their temperature and keep them home if their temperature is at or above 100F.
There are prescription medications availlable to treat the flu if you start the treatment within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms.
