Flu season continues! The increase in influenza (FLU) in Maine and across the United States has many health officials concerned. As school nurses, we are asking for your help in preventing the spread of flu in our schools.


Influenza is highly contagious and can come on quickly. People typically experience: headache, fever (greater than 100.0), severe body aches, and respiratory symptoms such as cough, sore throat and runny nose. If your child is experiencing any of these symptoms accompanied with a fever, they must not return to school until their temperature has been normal for a full 24 hours

(without the use of fever reducing medications like acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen). If you have any questions regarding your child’s symptoms, your child’s primary care provider is the best person to call.


Doing the following may help protect you and your family from the spread of influenza:


  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue or inside of the elbow if a tissue is not available

  • Washing your hands often with soap and water is best or use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available

  • Avoid taking infants, young children or those with chronic illnesses like asthma, diabetes or cancer  into large crowds during flu season

  • Minimize close contact with those who are ill

  • Do not share water bottles, straws, or eating utensils

  • IF YOU OR YOUR CHILD HAVE NOT RECEIVED A FLU SHOT, IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO SEE YOUR PRIMARY CARE PROVIDER TO GET ONE.

We appreciate your help in keeping our schools and communities healthy and safe.  


Sincerely,


Nursing Team

The Maine CDC and DOE have contacted all Maine School Nurses for help  with getting the word out that measles are on the rise - there have been over 200 cases of measles in the past few months across the US with an isolated case of mumps in York, Maine last week reported by CDC. These diseases are both preventable with the MMR vaccine.  
  • Importantly - Adults can get measles and mumps. Do you know your immunization status? Have you had a booster? 
  • Are your children and loved ones up to date with recommended immunizations?
  • The CDC states that people who are born during or after 1957 who do not have evidence of immunity against measles should get at least one dose of MMR vaccine. 
  • Pregnant women should consult with their provider. 
  • People who are not immunized and travel internationally are at greater risk due to differences in immunization requirements.
Measles is a respiratory disease caused by a virus that can be spread through the air by breathing, coughing, or sneezing. The disease is also called rubeola and is easily spread from person to person. Measles causes fever, runny nose, cough and rash all over the body. The rash usually begins on a person's face and spreads down to the neck, trunk, arms, legs and feet. When the rash appears, a person's fever may rise to more than 104 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Mumps is a disease caused by the mumps virus. Before the vaccine was used in the United States, mumps was a common illness in infants, children and young adults. Mumps is spread by mucus or droplets from the nose or throat of a person with the disease, usually when a person coughs or sneezes. The most common symptoms usually start with fever, headache, muscle aches, tiredness and loss of appetite followed by swelling of glands.

Staying home when you are sick, always covering a cough, and vigilant hand hygiene can cut down on the spread of viruses. Lets work together to stay healthy!
