​Way to go Bison!
The district health services department would like to share some information with you. Attached is a Flu Fact Sheet from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. As we are in the flu season, watch for flu symptoms including fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, may have vomiting and diarrhea, and feeling very tired. A person with the flu is contagious from 1 day before getting sick to 5-7 days after becoming sick.  The flu is spread mostly from person to person through coughs and sneezes of people who are sick; or by touching surfaces with the flu virus on it and then touching eyes, mouth or nose. To prevent the spread of viruses, wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, cover coughs and sneezes, and avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth.
School Attendance: Do not send you child to school if he/she is sick. Keep your child home from school for at least 24 hours after their fever is gone without having taken fever-reducing medication.
If you child gets flu-like symptoms, consult your doctor as needed, and make sure your child gets plenty of rest and drinks plenty of fluids. Children with chronic health conditions (like asthma or diabetes) may be more susceptible to the flu.
