From the Superintendent! 

Dear LGSUHSD Staff, Students, and Parents, 


The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) reports that influenza (flu) activity levels have increased over the past several weeks. As a reminder, please do not send your student to school if they are feeling sick or if they have a fever of 100F or above. Please keep your student home until he/she is fever-free for 24 hours without the aid of any medication. Keeping sick students home will be a great benefit for the health and wellness of our students and staff and will help your student’s recovery. 


Influenza is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. Because the flu is so contagious, it is important that students stay home if they have symptoms. Symptoms of the flu include:

Cough Sore throat Runny nose Body Aches Headache Chills Fatigue Vomiting and Diarrhea

If symptoms persist, seek medical attention immediately.  Seek medical attention especially if vomiting and/or diarrhea persist, fever with a rash, fast or troubled breathing, bluish or gray skin color. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the best way to prevent influenza is as follows: 

Get vaccinated every year  Avoid close contact with sick people  Frequent handwashing with soap  Stay at home if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms  Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth Individuals with chronic health issues and/or individuals experiencing severe symptoms should be evaluated by a medical professional. See more prevention tips here from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

 

The 2019-2020 Flu Season has been complicated by recent reports of a novel (new) Coronavirus (2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses, some causing respiratory illness. Common symptoms in an infected person include fever, cough and shortness of breath or difficulty breathing which are similar to symptoms of the influenza virus.

The CDC and state and local public health departments are closely monitoring developments regarding an outbreak caused by coronavirus first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. The first case in the United States was announced on January 21, 2020 in the State of Washington. Public health departments are working to identify anyone who might be infected to prevent further spread of the outbreak. The Santa Clara County Department of Public Health has provided some answers to the frequently asked questions related to Coronavirus - see the link below for helpful information. As with the flu, any individual experiencing respiratory symptoms, such as fever, cough, shortness of breath and are feeling tired should stay home from school or work and seek medical advice. This is particularly important if there has been recent travel to China.
