Chickasaw City Elementary School and the Early Learning Center are seeing large numbers of Flu both A & B.

  • Remember if your child is running a temperature , or you feel the need to give them a fever reliever , Please keep them home.  
  • Children should be fever free for 24 hours ( with out the use of a fever reducing medication) before returning to school.  
  • If the child is running a fever , we recommend having them tested for the flu.  Tamiflu if given in the first 24-48 hours can reduce the length of the flu by half.  
  • Prevention is the best medicine.  GOOD Handwashing, getting a flu immunization, good diet, plenty of rest and extra vitamin c. 
  • Teach your child to cough into their elbow or sleeve.
