We understand that there is concern about illness in our schools especially with influenza, strep throat and COVID-19 (formerly known as Coronavirus). Please be assured that we work closely with the Butler County Health Department to stay up to date with concerns and illness trends in our area. As a district, please know the following:

  • We are closely monitoring the CDC updates and recommendations. 

  • All nurses currently monitor illnesses, as they always have, to identify flu and other illness trends. If greater than normal illnesses are happening, our nurses work with the health department and will notify parents and staff as needed to monitor their children. Additionally, our nurses are in close contact with the custodial staff so that should there be an increase in any type of illness extra steps are added to the daily cleaning procedures to lessen the spread of germs.

  • There are currently no cases of COVID-19 in Ohio, and our US risk of infection remains “low” per the CDC, so anything now is in the preparation phase and not currently an active disease outbreak.

  • As always, we continue to encourage hand hygiene, cough/sneeze etiquette and staying home when ill.

If you have any further questions, please contact your building nurse.
