Flu Season Is Here

The cold and flu season is upon us.  Influenza A and B have both been diagnosed among the students and some staff at the school.  We have also had a few confirmed cases of strep throat and the stomach virus.

Influenza A and B along with strep throat are transmitted in the air by sneezing, coughing, and talking.

The stomach virus is transmitted on surfaces and through the exchange of saliva, for example, sharing food and drinking from the same cup or bottle.

The custodial crew specifically focused on sanitizing surfaces around the school in classrooms, common areas, restrooms, door handles, and water fountains after school on Thursday, December 6.

We notified the Health Department in November and both the Health Department and the school are continuing to monitor illness at the school.

Flu shots are still available to protect against infection or to mitigate flu symptoms.  Students and Staff can take steps to reduce exposure to illness by frequently washing hands and covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing.  Avoid close contact with others who are coughing and sneezing.  FLU Season is Here!

Students and Staff who have a fever or may be vomiting or experiencing diarrhea should stay home from school until those symptoms are no longer present.


Immunizations

Immunizations are an important part of your child/children's health care and Colorado law requires that children attending child care, preschool, and k-12 school be vaccinated to prevent vaccine preventable disease. Please see the Colorado State's Website for requirements for immunizations and necessary paperwork to be completed by your health care professional and provided to the school with your registration and throughout your child/children's education.
