Dear Parent/Caregiver and Staff:
As you may be aware, influenza season has arrived in the area. We have been notified that a number of children have become sick with influenza and/or influenza-like illnesses at your child's school. We want you to know that steps can be taken to control this important public health issue.
Influenza or "flu" is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that can cause mild to severe illness. Flu viruses usually spread from person to person when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Sometimes people may become infected by touching something, such as a surface or object, with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or nose. We recommend the following measures to prevent the spread of influenza in the school population:
If you have any questions, please contact your child's doctor or the Warren County Health Department at 540-635-3159.

I have been very impressed by the serious consideration many have taken regarding the Tiered School Starts proposal. I thank all those that took the time to respond. It is very helpful to this process to hear what folks are wondering about or thinking.
Many of the responses were simply questions about this proposal. I have attempted to consolidate the questions asked in this document.
After reading this if you need further clarification, send me an email and I will do my best to respond individually firstname.lastname@example.org.
In a couple of weeks I will send out an update on the process.
