According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) the Flu epidemic now includes 17 states (including Kentucky). Our district has already begun disinfecting classrooms, common areas, and school buses to reduce the spread of illness. We also need parent and guardian assistance in this matter. If your child is displaying "flu-like" symptoms please ensure they see a medical professional before sending them to school. If your child has been diagnosed with the Flu please keep them home until they have gone at least 24 hours without a fever. It is also important that people who have the flu stay away from public areas like stores, restaurants, etc to help prevent the spread of illness.
