Health Office Reminder

Due to recent reports of increase in influenza-like illness, the DuPage County Health Department is recommending the following to help control and prevent the spread of influenza (flu) and toward keeping our students and community safe and healthy. To prevent widespread flu in the school, we recommend that your child stay home from school if experiencing flu-like illness symptoms (such as fever, cough, and sore throat). Since influenza is primarily spread by direct contact with nose and throat secretions, there are measures we can all take to reduce our chances of becoming sick with influenza and other similar infections.



➢—— Know the signs and symptoms of the flu. Symptoms of the flu include fever (100 degrees Fahrenheit or greater), cough, sore throat, a runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, and feeling very tired.

For medical questions or concerns, contact your physician. Anti-viral medications may be ordered by your physician to shorten the duration of illness and make the symptoms milder.

➢—— Your child should stay home if he/she is sick until at least 24 hours after there is no longer a fever or signs of a fever (without the use of fever-reducing medications).



Please follow the link from the Center for Disease Control for more information about influenza and how you can help keep your family healthy.
