As you have probably heard from various media outlets, the flu season has come early this year. Some areas of the state are reporting widespread outbreaks of the flu. Currently, I can confirm that we have had some cases of the flu reported in our district. At this time, campuses are not reporting an above average number of absences.
As a district, we have already started taking precautions. Our custodial staff will be doing extra cleanings of our buildings. Our staff members will be emphasizing the importance of thorough hand washing. The principals will be closely monitoring attendance for signs of flu related illness. We are asking for everyone’s help to lessen the impact of flu on our students and staff.
