Message from the Health Office:
We have had some confirmed cases of the flu at Buker school. See the following “Flu Guide for Parents” for information on treatment and prevention. Symptoms of the flu can include fever, cough, stuffy nose, body aches, headache, feeling tired, and sometimes vomiting and diarrhea (more common in children). If you suspect that your child has the flu, it is essential that you keep him/her home from school to prevent the spread of illness to others and so that your child can rest and recover. If your child has a fever, keep him/her home until he/she is fever free (defined as 100 degrees F) without fever-reducing medicine.
