A message from our School Nurse
Please note that Influenza (Flu) was reported in our schools this week. The incubation period is one to four days. It is spread from nose or mouth (sneezing, coughing, talking). Symptoms of the flu include sudden fever (100.4 F or higher), chills, headache, muscle pain, sore throat, and a dry cough. General cold symptoms may follow which include runny nose, ear pain, and a tired feeling. Cough and tiredness may last for one to two weeks. Your student should not return to school until fever free for 24 hours without fever reducing medications, symptoms are minimal, and your student can tolerate a full day of school. Please see the below Kent County Health Department Influenza Fact Sheet for more information.
As with all school absences, please call the office of your student's school building to report the absence.
