School Wellness and Illness Prevention

According to reports from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), this year there are seeing trends of earlier and more wide spread cases of Influenza and/or Influenza Like Illness across our state.   In an effort to educate and do our best to prevent the transmission of illness in our local schools, I have attached:
  • "Influenza Symptom Screening Tool for Parents and Caregivers": This handout provides guidance to caregivers as to when to keep kids home from school as well as important information to share with school staff when calling to dismiss your student in ill.
  • "Cover Your Cough": is a brochure with guidelines on illness prevention
  • "Influenza (Flu) Information for Parents": Provides more specific information on the illness, what to watch for and when to call the clinic.
If you have any additional questions or concerns, please call your students medical provider and/or Sawtooth Mountain Clinic at 218-387-2330
