Flu Information

Influenza (the flu) is an infection of the nose, throat, and lungs caused by influenza viruses that are constantly changing. Flu causes illness, hospital stays, and deaths in the United States each year. Flu can be very dangerous for children. Each year about 20,000 children younger than five years old are hospitalized from flu complications, like pneumonia. Please see below for more information on the flu.

Strep Throat

Please note that one or more students at our school have been diagnosed with strep throat. Please take the following precautions:

  • Watch your child for signs of sore throat and other signs of strep (headache, fever, stomach ache, rash, and swollen and tender neck glands).
  • If your child develops a sore throat and any of these signs, please see your healthcare provider. Tell him or her that another child in the school has strep, and ask to have a strep test.
  • Tell us if your child has been diagnosed with strep infection.

Please see our strep throat letter for more information.
