Influenza Update (from the Maynard Public Schools Health Services Department)
According to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health Weekly Influenza Update for
January 26, 2018, influenza-like illness (ILI *) activity is increasing, consistent with other parts of the United States. *ILI is defined as a fever above 100.0 degrees in addition to either cough or sore throat.
To keep influenza-like activity from spreading in the school community it is important to keep your sick child at home when he or she has symptoms of the flu. Use this form to determine whether your child should attend school and when they can return.
Lastly, please remember to call your school’s absentee line everyday that you keep your child home. Try to be as specific with his or her illness as possible, i.e. “home sick with fever of XXX.X degree fever and a cough” or “home with an ear infection”, “strep infection”, “pneumonia” or “home for a fever-free day”. This will help the school nurses identify clusters of illness and prompt preventative measures.
