We have had several students test positive for the flu on all campuses in Searcy County School District.  The symptoms of the flu can include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills, fatigue and sometimes vomiting and diarrhea.  Some people with the flu will not have all these symptoms. 

People with the flu can spread it to others up to about 6 feet away, especially when sneezing or coughing.  That is why it is very important to encourage children to cover their coughs and perform frequent hand washing/hand sanitizer.  A person can also get the flu from touching a surface or object that has the flu virus on it and then touching his/her own nose, eyes or mouth.  

IF YOUR CHILD IS SICK AND EXHIBITING THE ABOVE SYMPTOMS WITH A FEVER, WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO KEEP YOUR CHILD HOME UNTIL HE/SHE HAS BEEN FEVER-FREE FOR 24 HOURS WITHOUT USING TYLENOL/IBUPROFEN TO REDUCE THE FEVER.   THE STUDENT MAY STILL BE CONTAGIOUS UNTIL THIS TIME.

If your child develops flu symptoms, please contact your doctor.  If treated early enough, flu symptoms can be reduced by taking anti-viral medication as prescribed by your doctor.   The child will still be contagious while taking anti-viral medication until he/she has not had a fever for over 24 hours.

Please feel free to call us if you have any questions.  Teachers and staff at Searcy County School District are following protocol for proper cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces.  They are also encouraging students to cover their coughs and perform frequent hand washing.
