Parents, we want you to be aware that we have had several confirmed cases of Influenza A in students in the Jr/Sr High and confirmed cases among a few staff across the district. Over the weekend we have added a preventative step to our cleaning process in attempts to prohibit the spread of this flu strain. Children are contagious for 10-14 days and adults 5-7 days after symptoms appear. Everyone is contagious 1-2 days prior to symptoms appearing. Symptoms include: Fever or feeling feverish/chills (not everyone with flu will have fever), Cough, Sore throat, Runny or stuffy nose, Muscle or body aches, Headaches, Fatigue (tiredness), and Vomiting and diarrhea, although this is more common in children than adults. Please take caution and keep your family healthy.
