As you know, the flu season in Nebraska is widespread this year. I
wanted to make you aware that we have seen a rise in staff and student
absences this week and as a precaution, I would like to remind you of
· It is very important for students to stay home when ill, specifically when they are running a fever above 100 degrees.
· Once diagnosed, students should remain at home until they are fever free for 24 hours, without fever reducing medication.
The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services’ website provides
the following guidelines for parents to review with their child in order
to help prevent the spread of flu:
· Remind children to cover
their nose and mouth with a tissue when they cough or sneeze and have
them throw the tissue away after they use it.
· Wash hands often
with soap and water, especially after they cough or sneeze. If water
is not near, use an alcohol-based hand cleaner.
· Remind children not to touch their eyes, nose or mouth. Germs often spread this way.

With your help,
we can keep the flu from spreading. If you have any questions or
concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our school nurse Kammie
