SWINE FLU (H1N1)
As you may know, the H1N1 flu virus is present in our community, state and throughout the nation. Our school district is working closely with the Marin Health & Human Services to monitor flu conditions and to make the best decisions concerning our schools. All district decisions regarding the health and safety of our students and staff will be made according to CDC guidelines. We will continue to closely monitor our schools and children, respond to any public health announcements and rapidly provide information on our website and automated phone system.
We ask for your help in attending to your health and the health of our students. The symptoms of the H1N1 influenza virus infection are fever of 100 degrees or higher with cough. Other symptoms may include sore throat, body aches, headache, chills, fatigue, and nausea and vomiting. The seasonal flu vaccine does not offer protection against this particular virus.
Here are some ways you can protect yourself and your family
Our teachers and staff will also be stressing the importance of frequent hand washing and "sneezing in your sleeve." If flu symptoms occur at school, students and staff members will not be allowed to remain at school.
