Re: Influenza Like Illness
We have identified that a number of children at school are currently off ill with an influenza-like illness. The numbers are larger than would normally be expected, so after discussion with PHE North West’s Cheshire and Merseyside Health Protection Team, we are writing to parents/Carers.
Health professionals have advised that:
If your child develops these symptoms whilst at school we will call you to take your child home. In order to stop and control the current infection in school the Governors have agreed with me that Reception class will be closed until Monday 25th January 2016. During this closure we have organised for the classrooms and equipment to be deep cleaned. Infection control professionals advise that sick children stay at home for 5 days and do not send children back to school until they are fully recovered.
