Flu Clinic- November 16th, 2011

For all students and staff at Sloan-Hendrix School

Forms will be sent home with students Nov. 1st. Parents need to fill them out and send back to
school ASAP, if they want their child to have a flu shot. Parents may pick up a form in the High
School or Elementary office, if a student should lose or not get home with their form.

Signs and symptoms of the flu are:

Fever of more than 100 degrees F
Sore throat
Body aches
Omitting, nausea and diarrhea

The best thing to do is teach your children the importance of handwashing. Warm soapy water
is best and an alcohol based hand sanitizer. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you
cough or sneeze. Stay home if your sick, to keep their viruses to themselves rather than sharing
them with others. Children should be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school,
without taking medication.
