At San Pasqual Union, we strive to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all children to learn. That’s why we want to make you aware that influenza (flu) activity is increasing in San Diego County, as well as nationally. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has warned that this may be a severe influenza season.

 Peak influenza activity often occurs in late winter to early spring; fortunately, it is not too late to receive the flu vaccine. While the CDC had indicated that this year's seasonal flu vaccine is not as good a match for the circulating influenza strain compared to previous years, San Diego County Public Health Services have advised that partial protection is better than no protection. The vaccine is safe and effective, and can help prevent severe complications and hospitalization due to influenza.

 Besides getting the flu vaccine, there are a number of things you can do to help prevent the spread of influenza and influenza-like illness caused by other viruses and bacteria circulating in the community:

 Promote good respiratory etiquette. It is recommended that ill persons cover their mouths and noses with a tissue when they cough or sneeze, or to cough into their elbows.

  • Encourage good hand hygiene, which means hand washing with soap and water for 20 seconds (tell younger children this is about the time it takes to sing “Happy Birthday” twice).
  • If soap and water is not available, hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol may be used.
  • Surfaces that are touched often should be routinely cleaned using the general cleaning products already in use and following the manufacturer's instructions.
  • These surfaces may include desks, countertops, doorknobs, computer keyboards, any hands-on learning objects, faucet handles, and phones.
  • If your child is ill, please keep him or her home until at least 24 hours after his/her fever is gone (without the use of medicine).

County Public Health, and our school district, are continuing to monitor influenza activity through the season. If you would like additional information, please visit the County’s Flu and You webpage (www.countynewscenter.com/flu-and-you).
