In order to prevent the flu virus from spreading, please ensure that, should your child begin showing signs of flu (sore throat, headache, body ache, fever, coughing, vomiting and/or diarrhea), they are kept at home until fully recovered. It is further advised that a medical evaluation be carried out. Parents are requested to inform the school of flu-infected children. The one or two confirmed cases of H1NI Virus have made a full and complete recovery with no complications or need for hospitalization.
To prevent your child from picking up an infectious illness such as flu; ensure that they are appropriately dressed, take an extra multi-vitamin or immune booster and eat an additional supply of fresh fruit and vegetables. Washing of hands regularly is also advised.
