Nurse's Notes

Just a reminder that we have officially entered flu season and while we haven’t had any confirmed cases of influenza here at Sunflower, there have been over 50 confirmed cases of influenza in our school district.


Flu Symptoms

· fever* or feeling feverish/chills.

· cough.

· sore throat.

· runny or stuffy nose.

· muscle or body aches.

· headaches.

· fatigue (tiredness)


*Unlike a cold which comes on gradually, flu usually comes on fast and furious. You are feeling okay and then you feel very achy, chilly and feverish.

*This is not to be mistaken for the “stomach flu” which isn’t the flu at all, but a nasty vomiting and diarrhea bug* Influenza can present with some vomiting and diarrhea but usually not.


The single best practice for flu prevention is the proper and frequent washing of hands with soap and water. Also, try to get quality, consistent sleep, exercise, eat a healthy diet and use the tools you have to manage stress. It is not too late to get the flu shot if you haven’t already. Many pharmacies and the County Health Department offer walk in vaccines. For JCHE flu shot information, please see:

Why Instrumental Music?

There are so many success stories about students who lack confidence or feel socially awkward who join the school music program(s) and it turns their whole life around! Read this great article about the power and purpose of music education. An oboe student is mentioned in the introduction: “Her dad, who carried his own scars of social awkwardness, told [the author] he doubted whether his daughter would pursue the oboe past high school, but the lessons she learned and supports she enjoyed as a “bandie” were alone worth the cost of the instrument. The musical literacy she cultivated – the knowledge and skills – was just gravy.”
