Flu Update

posted Feb 8, 2017, 8:57 AM by Craig Lawson

Dear Parents/ Guardians: 

To prevent widespread illnesses in the school, we recommend that you keep your child home from school until they are free from symptoms such as those listed below. This also applies to any illness that may spread to others. Seek medical attention as necessary and report any of these symptoms or a flu diagnosis to your child's School Nurse.

Thermometer
A child who has a fever greater than 100.4 degrees should remain at home until "fever free" for a minimum of 24 hours without having had fever-reducing medicine. We also recommend that your child stay home from school if they have any of the following symptoms:



• Vomiting (even once)
• Diarrhea
• Chills
• General malaise or feelings of fatigue, discomfort, weakness or muscle aches
• Frequent congested (wet) or croupy cough
• Lots of nasal congestion with frequent blowing of nose

To help prevent the flu and other colds, teach your children good hygiene habits:

• Wash hands frequently
• Do not touch eyes, nose or mouth
• Cover mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing, use a paper tissue, throw it away and then wash hands
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick

Often when a child awakens with vague complaints (the way colds and flu begin), it is wise to observe your child at home for an hour or two before deciding whether or not to take him or her to school. Keeping a sick child at home will help minimize the spread of infections and viruses in the classroom.

The Pender County Health Department recommends adults and children get vaccinated against the flu annually. The flu shot is one of the best ways to prevent illness from the seasonal influenza virus. For more information about flu prevention, please call the Health Department at 910-259-1230 or visit www.cdc.gov/flu or www.flu.gov or call 800-CDC-INFO.
