Follow These Tips to Prevent the Flu

The Little Rock School District would like to provide you with tips to help keep your family healthy during flu season. While the district is not experiencing any issues related to the flu, in light of recent health developments across the country, you may want to review the following health tips. The best protection against the flu is getting a flu shot every year. Health officials remind us of these four tips, which if practiced daily are the best defense to keep yourself and your family well:

  1. wash your hands frequently
  2. use a tissue to cover your nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing; if a tissue is not available cough/sneeze into your arm not your hands
  3. avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
  4. avoid physical contact with anyone who displays symptoms
