The H1NI influenza is generally considered to be mild or moderate in severity. It is characterized by a sudden onset, muscle aches, fever and a cough. There are no plans to close schools at this time as this will not stop the spread of the virus.

In the meantime, increased hand-washing and coughing/sneezing into your sleeve are critical for helping to slow the virus. Students who are sick should stay home (doctor’s rule of thumb: 7 days or until you are symptom free… whichever is shorter).

If parents are wishing more information regarding the H1N1 influenza, you are encouraged to view the following website where more detailed information is provided:
