Influenza-Like-Illness

This past week we have seen students with influenza-like-illness.  Some of these students have tested positive for Influenza A.  Influenza-like symptoms include a fever or 100 degrees F or higher AND a sore throat or cough.  If your child has a fever AND a sore throat or cough, he or she needs to stay home for at least 24 hours after his or her fever is gone WITHOUT using a fever-reducing medication like Tylenol or ibuprofen.  Other symptoms of influenza include a headache and sore muscles.  If your child has any influenza-like symptoms, I encourage you to contact your health care provider.

Please notify the school if your child is diagnosed with Influenza, Influenza-like-Illness (ILI) or strep.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 242-2583.
