    News:

    Stevens has an increased number of sick students. Here is some important information about the Flu from the CDC. Please help staff and students here at school keep well by  keeping your student home if they are not looking or feeling well. Provide lots of rest, water and most importantly handwashing.

    Keep your student home for at least 24 hours after fever is gone. Fever should be absent without the use of fever-reducing medicine.

    Flu Symptoms

    Influenza (also known as flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by flu viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. Flu is different from a cold. Flu usually comes on suddenly. People who are sick with flu often feel some or all of these symptoms:

    • Fever* or feeling feverish/chills
    • Cough
    • Sore throat
    • Runny or stuffy nose
    • Muscle or body aches
    • Headaches
    • Fatigue (tiredness)
    • Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in children than adults.

    *It’s important to note that not everyone with flu will have a fever.
