We are seeing an increased number of cases of Influenza at North Linn, particularly in the middle school. If your child has symptoms of influenza please keep them home. Kids need to be fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication (Tylenol or Ibuprofen) before returning to school. Hand washing is the best way to prevent the spread of the flu. Flu shots are still advised if you or your children have not received them. Although the vaccine may not prevent the flu it does tend to lessen the severity of the illness. You may contact the Linn County Public Health Department (319-892-6095) if you have questions or need vaccinated.
