Just a few things before the week of finals...Dec. 15, 2017

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Caring Adults,

Our school district has documented cases of influenza A and B. Initially, influenza may seem like a common cold with a runny nose, sneezing, and sore throat. However, colds usually develop slowly, whereas influenza tends to come on suddenly.

Common signs and symptoms of influenza include:

  • Fever over 100.4 F (38 C)
  • Aching muscles, especially in your back, arms, and legs

  • Chills and sweats

  • Headache

  • Dry, persistent cough

  • Fatigue and weakness

  • Nasal congestion

  • Sore throat

Please watch your child for any of the above symptoms. Keep in mind that among children, ear pain, nausea, and vomiting are also commonly reported with the influenza illness.

Unfortunately influenza is very contagious. We are doing our best to prevent the spread, but you can also help by keeping your child at home if he/she is sick. If your child is diagnosed with influenza, please notify the nursing department via e-mail so we are able to track the illness.
