A Note from the Brunswick School Department Nurses
Dear Parents and Guardians;
Newspaper and television coverage of the early onset of influenza, and the severity of the outbreak, has raised the level of awareness of all of us over this potential public health problem.
As school nurses, we are asking for your help in the prevention of this contagious disease. When you question if your child is ill and could possibly have contracted a flu-like illness, please do not send him/her to school. Influenza is highly contagious, and the contagious period in children lasts up to 7 days.
