Parents, as precautionary measures of COVID-19, any student that presents with Flu-like symptoms will be treated as if they have Covid-19 (because the symptoms are so similar). It is our recommendation that the student be checked for Covid-19 and the Flu (this is just a recommendation). Should your child have the test done, please make sure the nurse attains a copy of the results to ensure a safe environment for other students and staff.
