Coronavirus in the News – Cold and Flu Season – When to Keep Your Child Home
You may have seen in the news or on social media that Washington state has had one confirmed case of coronavirus. We know this kind of news is worrisome to families, and in this case, many of the early symptoms may appear much like the flu.
While it is a serious illness, the Washington State Department of Health considers it a low risk to the public at this time. However, flu season is definitely here and we ask that if your child is sick, please keep them at home. If you're not sure whether or not to keep your child home, review the information available on our "Too Sick for School" webpage.
Ways to protect yourself and your family from colds and flu are to ensure everyone has a flu shot, wash hands thoroughly, drink plenty of fluids, get plenty of rest and stay home when ill. Learn more tips for staying well on the Health Services section of the LWSD website.
The District is actively monitoring this situation and is in contact with the Washington State Department of Health. We will communicate more information should the State Department of Health provide an update affecting schools.
