Dear Parent or Guardian,
Influenza spreads very easily in the early stages of the illness. To protect your child, as well as other children, we ask that you review the attached Influenza Fact Sheet from the Iowa Department of Public Health.
Please check out the attachment "The Flu: A Guide for Parents" for information about the flu, if your child is very sick and should your child stay home from school. As always, check with your healthcare provider for questions about your child's health.
