Flu Guidance

Please keep your child home if they are sick with flu or flu-like symptoms and until fever free for at least 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications.

*Flu symptoms can include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills, feeling tired and sometimes vomiting and diarrhea (more common in children than adults). Some people with the flu will not have a fever.

*Flu symptoms should be absent or minimal for those 24 hours in order to return to school.

*People with flu may be able to infect others from 1 day before getting sick to up to 5 to 7 days after. Severely ill people or young children may be able to spread the flu longer, especially if they still have symptoms.

*Take your child to the doctor immediately if your child develops:

  • Fast breathing or trouble breathing
  • Bluish or gray skin color
  • Not drinking enough fluids (not going to the bathroom or not making as much urine as they normally do)
  • Severe or persistent vomiting
  • Not waking up or not interacting
  • Being so irritable that the child does not want to be held
  • Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough.

Sports Physicals

Attention All Students Involved in Sports: 


Sports Physical: A student must pass a pre-sport physical exam. A physical examination form signed by a physician and a parental release must be on file at the office BEFORE tryouts, practice, or competitions.  For more information, see the school nurse and/or refer to the form linked on the right side of this web page.
