What's Going Around

May 3, 2022

-Some cases of Influenza A have been reported

-High fevers with headaches, bodyaches, fatigue and respiratory symptoms 

-Pollen counts are becoming high and I am noticing many students with allergy like symptoms (itchy, watery eyes, runny nose, coughing, sore throats that get better with fluids and after being awake for awhile)  if they need daily allergy meds in the spring, please consider starting those now.

-Vomiting and diarrhea cases that seem to last 24-48 hours

-Sore throats, cough, congestion with fevers

-COVID is increasing in Johnson County and in SMSD, please watch for symptoms and if you notice your child has a cough, fever, headache, sore throat, body aches, loss of smell/taste, nausea and vomiting or diarrhea consider getting them tested for COVID and inform Nurse Martin of the results.

-Lice-  lice is always present in approximately 1% of the US population, we have had occasional cases being reported at Shawanoe since August, please see district health services webpage here for district lice policies.
