Tuesday, January 30 2018 16:36

Please be aware it is “flu” season. The following is information on the signs and symptoms of the “flu”. If your child shows any signs or symptoms, please keep him or her home this will greatly decrease the spread of the “flu” virus.

• Fever or feeling feverish/chills


•Sore throat

•Runny or stuffy nose

•Muscle or body aches


•Fatigue (tiredness)

•Occasionally, vomiting or diarrhea


As Influenza is a viral illness, antibiotics are not a useful treatment; however, there are antiviral treatments that can lessen the duration if taken at the onset of the symptoms. The best prevention is the “flu” shot and follow the 3 Cs:

•Clean – all common surfaces, especially if experiencing symptoms of the flu and clean hands either by good hand washing or sanitizer.

•Cover – your cough or sneeze with the inner part of your elbow/arm or with a Kleenex. Always wash hands following coughing or sneezing.

•Contain – keep children and yourself home when experiencing the above symptoms, especially with temperature of 100 degrees or higher. Do not return to school or work until fever free for 24 hours without the aid of fever reducing medications.
