A Note From Nurse Ann

We are seeing an increase in Flu cases here in Indian Land. Please remember that if your child has a fever or any flu-like symptoms, they need to stay home. The guidelines for returning to school after a fever are they must be free from fever for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medicine. DHEC recommends to limit contact with ill persons – and that means not within 6 feet of someone who is having influenza-like symptoms or fever. That is hard to do in a classroom! Thank you for your cooperation with this.
