Flu Information

What You Can Do to Stay Healthy (from the CDC website)

Stay informed. The Center for Disease Control website will be updated regularly as information becomes available.  For more information please call 1-800-CDC-INFO or visit www.flu.gov.

Influenza is thought to spread mainly person-to-person through coughing or sneezing of infected people. Take everyday actions to stay healthy:
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hands cleaners are also effective.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way.
  • Stay home if you get sick. CDC recommends that you stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them.
  • Follow public health advice regarding school closures, avoiding crowds and other social distancing measures.
  • Find healthy ways to deal with stress and anxiety.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 As we prepare to welcome our students back to school, we continue our focus on providing strong supports, services, and educational programming. One area of educational programming that we would like to discuss as we open our doors is flu prevention.

As you may know, flu can be easily spread from person to person. Therefore, we are taking steps to reduce the spread of flu in the Amherst, Pelham and Amherst-Pelham Regional Schools. We want to keep our schools open to students and functioning in a normal manner during this flu season; however, we need your help to do this. Please see the attached letter and information sheets about how you can help.

Querido Padre/Guardián:
Al disponernos a darles la bienvenida de regreso a la escuela a nuestros estudiantes, continuamos nuestro enfoque de brindar todo nuestro apoyo, servicios, y programación educativa. Un área de programación educativa que quisiéramos discutir al abrir nuestras puertas es la prevención de gripe.

Como ya ustedes saben, la gripe puede contagiarse fácilmente de persona a persona. Por lo tanto, estamos tomando precauciones para reducir la propagación de la gripe en las Escuelas de Amherst, Pelham y las Escuelas Regionales de Amherst –Pelham. Queremos mantener a nuestras escuelas abiertas para los estudiantes y funcionando de manera normal durante esta temporada de gripe; sin embargo, necesitamos su ayuda para poder hacerlo.  Favor de leer la carta y la informacion adjunta para aprender como nos pude ayudar.
