H1N1 Flu - should I send my child to school?
Schools and parents of school children are being asked to help with tracking the new flu bug in Minnesota. Parents should keep kids home from school if they are sick with flu-like symptoms: fever and a sore throat, cough, body aches, or runny nose. (See the “Link to Announcements and Forms” on the High School web page for “Parent Flu Screening” guidelines.) When calling the school to report that your child will not be in school, tell them your child has flu-like symptoms. Schools are being asked to report to the state health department the number of children gone and the number of children sick with flu-like symptoms each day. Your child’s name will not be shared with anyone outside of their school. Thank you for your help!
