Flu Season Is Upon Us

Flu Season is Here

Flu season has arrived in North Texas. If your student experiences influenza-like symptoms such as fever with a cough or sore throat, please keep them home to rest and recover.

RISD takes additional precautions at schools this time of year, from increased efforts to remind students about healthy practices like hand washing, to increased frequency of cleaning high-traffic, high-touch areas on campus.

If your child has had a fever, don't send them to school until they’ve been fever-free for 24 hours without fever-reducing medicine, and please remember to alert your school nurse if your child is absent with flu-like symptoms.
