Note from the Nurse

Monroe Families,

With the changing weather and upcoming cold and flu season please see the attached FLU INFORMATION SHEET for your reference. For the safety of your child, no cough drops or hard candy will be allowed. They are encouraged to carry a water bottle instead.

When calling school to report your child’s absence, please communicate the following information:

  • The symptoms that your child is experiencing.
  • Does your child have a flu-like illness defined as fever (100 degrees F or higher) and a cough and/or sore throat in the absence of a known cause other than the flu?
  • If your child has a contagious disease, such as strep, pink eye, pneumonia, etc., please state so when leaving the message.


Thank you for your assistance and cooperation!  Additional information is located on the District’s website.

Thank you,

Charity Richardson

Monroe School Nurse
