Flu Outbreaks

Dear parents/ carers

As you are aware there has been cases of Flu confirmed at a Stockport school. While there are no cases in our school at this time we want to ensure that our children remain healthy and take every precaution against the spread of the virus. We have increased the cleaning levels in school and have given pupils information on good respiratory hygiene regimes. The following link gives further information on Flu.

In our school children are given the advice

CATCH IT – Cover your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing and use a tissue

BIN IT – Dispose of dirty tissues and bin them immediately.

KILL IT – Maintain good basic hygiene e.g. wash your hands frequently with soap and water

I would be grateful if you could continue to promote these messages in your home.

If your child has any of the following symptoms: fever (37.8⁰C or higher) and any one of the following: tiredness, cough, sore throat, muscle pain, runny nose or congestion, wheezing, please ring to inform us of their absence and keep them off school for at least 5 days.

Thank you for your support

 

Mrs Muncaster
