As we enter the new school year nd the traditional influenza
season, we expect Wisconsin to continue seeing cases of the new pandemic
flu. School and public health officials are working closely to keep our children safe and healthy. We need your help!
ant thing you can do is to keep your child home if he/she is ill. If your child is so sick that you would normally seek medical
care, please do so. The new pandemic flu is very similar to ordinary seasonal flu. Flu symptoms include fever with a cough or sore throat
and severe muscle aches. A few cases of pandemic influenza have begun with nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea symptoms. Notify the

symptoms, they should stay home at least one day to see how the illness develops and until completely well for 24 hours. Children who are
ill upon arrival at school or become ill during the school day will be sent home.
At this time, health and school officials are not recommending school closures for individual cases of H1N1 flu. However, as with regular
seasonal flu, we might recommend closing school if larger numbers of students or faculty become ill. We will be guided by Crawford County
Public Health Department officials for any closure. In addition to staying home when sick, here are some important things you and your family can do to help stay healthy and keep others safe
