From the nurse’s desk:
We have had several cases of influenza diagnosed and spread among several grades. If you have a child with symptoms, please keep them home. The picture shows the influenza guidelines.
Strep throat has also been showing up in some cases.
Students should remain home from school until the child has been on antibiotics for 24 hours AND fever free for 24 hours without fever reducing medications.
If your child is ill and diagnosed by a doctor, please advise the staff prior to the beginning of the school day, and obtain a doctor’s note for attendance purposes.
