Recently we have seen an increase in influenza and influenza-like illnesses (fever, sore throat, headaches and body aches). The custodial staff have increased their efforts in cleaning and will continue to do extensive cleaning in the building to help prevent the spread of germs. Please assist us by keeping students home with fevers and/or other symptoms. Remember students with fevers should stay home a full day after the temperature returns to normal (without medication). When calling in a student's absence to the school (815-337-8616) please state all symptoms for tracking purposes. If you have questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to our Nurse, Nancy Kreznor (firstname.lastname@example.org or 815.338.8883).
