Dear Webster Groves families,
This month several of our schools have seen an increase in the number of flu-like illnesses. This note is a reminder of the symptoms, care and prevention of the “flu.”
People with the flu are most contagious in the first 3 to 4 days after their illness begins but may infect others beginning 1 day before symptoms develop. That means that you may be able to pass on the flu to someone else before you know you are sick, as well as while you are sick. We are asking that you keep your child home if they are sick until at least 24 hours after they no longer have a fever (100 degrees Fahrenheit or 38 degrees Celsius) or signs of a fever (have chills, feel very warm, have a flushed appearance, or are sweating). This should be determined without the use of fever-reducing medicines (any medicine that contains ibuprofen or acetaminophen). Along with fluids and rest, prescription antiviral medication can be used to treat flu illness. This treatment works best when started soon after flu illness begins. When treatment is started within 2 days of becoming sick with flu symptoms, this medication can lessen fever and flu symptoms, and shorten the duration of illness by about one day. The schools will continue to guard against the spread of the disease by keeping surfaces clean, encouraging proper hand hygiene and reminding students to “cover their coughs,” but your help in managing the spread of this infectious disease is greatly appreciated.
