Note from the Nurse

Influenza activity is increasing throughout Dallas County. As in past influenza seasons, the health and safety of all learners is a priority for New Tech. Since flu can spread easily from person to person, we need your help to prevent cases of flu in students and staff. It is important for all to take the following precautions at this time:

  • Monitor the health of your learner by checking for fever and other flu symptoms every morning. Symptoms of flu usually include fever with cough or sore throat, and sometimes runny nose, body aches, headache, vomiting or diarrhea.
  • Staff and learners with symptoms of the flu must stay at home and cannot return to school until they no longer have fever of 100 degrees or higher (without the use of fever reducing medications), diarrhea, or vomiting for at least 24 hours.
  • Ill learners should be encouraged to drink plenty of clear fluids to keep from becoming dehydrated.
  • Remind all household members to wash their hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer regularly, cover their cough with their elbow or sleeve, and to avoid touching their face.
  • Have all eligible household members vaccinated for influenza.
