Dear Parent or Guardian:
We have entered the time of year when we see influenza (flu) and other respiratory viruses at school. This year, KWCPS has seen an increase in the number of documented cases and we want to let you know what steps we are taking to keep our school community healthy and how you can help. Our custodial staff is taking additional precautions to ensure that common areas within our schools are properly sanitized to minimize the spread of germs. And, as always, staff encourages students to regularly wash and/or sanitize their hands to prevent children catching the flu or cold.
Respiratory infections, such as the flu and common cold, are spread when people come in close contact with sick people and inhale airborne droplets, or come in contact with contaminated surfaces. Flu and cold symptoms can sometimes be difficult to tell apart. Please review the chart below for a comparison:
