The Flu: Directions for Parents

It's that time of the year when the flu is making its rounds.  We have seen some cases of the flu in our area, but thankfully there have been very few.

You may be wondering how do I know when to keep my child home, and when do I need to search out other treatments?

Tthe Arkansas Children's Hospital  and LRSD Health Services department have created this document to help you make the best decisions.

Please also be aware that a few schools have reported several students with a stomach virus.  

When you are reporting absences related to illness, please make sure to tell your school the particular sickness your child has.

If you have any questions, please contact your local school nurse.
