Our Superintendent, Roxanne DeWeerd asked that we share the latest information about swine flu (H1N1 Flu Virus) from the Ottawa County Health Department. If your child does shows flu like symptoms, please report these to the office when you report their absence. school-swine-prevention-letter
Also, Department of Education is recommending that schools close if “there is a confirmed or suspected case epidemiologically linked to a confirmed case.” A student who doesn’t feel well isn’t enough. School districts need to know that they a child has a confirmed case or are linked to a confirmed case. For more information regarding this H1N1 virus, visit the Harvard Medical Health Site.
Thank you for your patience while we all sort through the developing details regarding this flu virus.
