Health Reminders

Flu viruses are spread mainly by droplets made when someone with flu coughs, sneezes or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people nearby. A person can get flu by touching something that has flu virus on it and then touching their mouths, eyes or nose.

Symptoms can include: fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills, feeling tired and sometimes vomiting and diarrhea (more common in children than adults). Some people with flu will not have a fever.

If your child has a fever of 100.0 or greater, they must stay home and be fever free for a full 24 hours, without being given any fever reducing medication (tylenol or ibuprofen) before returning to school.

If your child is diagnosed with the flu or has a fever, please be sure to email their homeroom teacher and Nurse Sarah at ryans@fortmillschools.org
