Red Oak ISD monitors flu-like illness in our students and staff daily. Good health and hygiene habits are very important to the health of our students, staff and visitors and are strongly encouraged. Our support service staff members clean frequently touched surfaces daily and perform extra sanitizing measures in classrooms and areas where flu illness is increasing.
We strongly urge parents to keep their children home if they have any flu-like symptoms such as fever greater than 100, sore throat, cough, body aches, vomiting or diarrhea until they are fever-free without the use of fever reducing medication for 24 hours. Your help is critical in keeping our schools healthy during this flu season.
We encourage parents to get the flu vaccine every year for their children ages 6 months and older and themselves. The Flu Finder on Texas Health & Human Services site will inform you of clinics in our area that can provide the flu vaccine.
