Important Message regarding the Influenza Virus
In an effort to keep students and staff safe amid very high rates of influenza in the community, we are asking for your help to ensure we maintain a healthy environment in our schools. Classic influenza is an acute highly contagious respiratory illness caused by a virus. There are three types of influenza viruses, A, B, and C. Symptoms may include fever, cough, headache, muscle aches, fatigue, sore throat, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. Influenza is spread from an ill person to other people by coughing and sneezing. To help prevent the influenza from spreading, it is recommended that hand washing practices are followed, especially after coughing, sneezing, or using tissues. Any student or staff suspected of being ill should not attend school or work. Persons with influenza should rest and drink lots of fluids. If you suspect that you or someone in your family has influenza, please contact your physician for advice and possible treatment. If diagnosed with influenza please follow your doctor’s recommendations. Additional information, including frequently asked questions, can be found on the Iowa Department of Public Health website.
