March 2017

Dear Parent/Guardians,

According to the CDC there have already been confirmed cases of the flu in Maine this fall.  It is important to have your child immunized against the flu.  Flu vaccine is readily available at pediatrician/doctor’s offices & walk-in clinics.  Many pharmacies (Rite Aid, Walgreens and Hannaford to name a few) offer walk in flu shots and they will bill MaineCare and most insurances.  We do recommend you call ahead.  Flu vaccines will not be offered at school this year for students because the vaccine is so readily available.  If you need more information on where you can get a flu vaccine please contact us.

As you may know, flu can easily be spread from person to person.  Therefore, we are taking steps to reduce the spread of flu in RSU 71 Schools.  We want to keep the school open to students and functioning in a normal manner during this flu season.  But we need your help to do this.

Here are a few things you can do to help reduce the chances of your child getting the flu, what symptoms to look for, and what you can do if they get the flu.

Teach your children to wash their hands often with soap and water (for as long as it takes to sing the Happy Birthday song twice).  If soap and water are not available, a waterless instant hand sanitizer may be used.

  • Teach your children not to share personal items like drinks, food or unwashed utensils, and to cover their coughs and sneezes with tissues.  Covering up their coughs or sneezes using the elbow, arms or sleeve instead of the hand when a tissue is unavailable.

  • Know the signs and symptoms of the flu.  Symptoms of the flu include fever (100 degrees Fahrenheit or greater), cough, sore throat, a runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, and feeling very tired.  Some children may also vomit or have diarrhea.

  • Keep sick children at home for at least 24 hours after they no longer have fever or do not have signs of fever, without using fever-reducing drugs.  Keeping children with a fever at home will reduce the number of people who may get infected.  This is a guideline from the CDC.

  • Do not send children if they are sick.  Any children who are determined to be sick (per guidelines from the CDC) while at school will be sent home.

If you have any questions, please call the Nurse’s Office at 342-5100/338-1858/338-4420/342-5300.  Or you may obtain more information about the flu at www.flu.gov.

Sincerely,


Christine Harrington, RN, BSN
