Flu Symptoms

Influenza (also known as flu) is a very contagious respiratory illness caused by flu viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. Flu is different from a cold. Flu usually comes on suddenly. People who are sick with flu often feel some or all of these symptoms:

  • Fever* or feeling feverish/chills
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue (tiredness)
  • Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in children than adults.

*It’s important to note that not everyone with flu will have a fever.

The symptoms are lasting 3-5 days.  Remember that your student should be free of fever 24 hours, without the use of a fever reducer, before returning to school.  Even without a fever, if your student is still exhibiting any of the above symptoms they should remain at home.

Please feel free to contact the school nurse if you have questions or concerns.
