Home of the 'Mustangs'

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 the following:

· 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.

For more tips and information regarding this year’s flu season, please visit the following website:

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 Wallace, at 531-299-7312

As always, thank you for your support of Monroe Middle School and the Omaha Public Schools.
