News from our School Nurse - Mrs. Alessi
It’s that time of year: Although the flu (or influenza) usually causes symptoms that make someone feel worse than symptoms associated with a common cold, it's not always easy to tell the difference between the two. (See below!)
The important thing to remember is that flu symptoms can vary from child to child. The signs and symptoms can change as the illness progresses. If you suspect the flu, call the doctor. The most definitive way to determine the flu is to perform a rapid influenza diagnostic test (RIDTs). Children must be fever free for 24 hours (without fever reducing medication) to return to school.
