Where am I?
- We have had a few more cases of Influenza A this week. Symptoms of influenza (the flu) are muscle aches and soreness, headaches, and fever. We continue to be diligent with our disinfection of desks and other surfaces to prevent further spread. As with any illness, please practice caution in sending your child to school before they have been fever free for 24 hours, without medication, and are feeling better.
When Should Your Child Stay Home From School?
Wolf Creek Elementary follows the exclusion recommendations set forth by the Johnson County Health Department. Please see "Exclusion Recommendations" under the Health Resources page for other conditions not listed below. Please follow these guidelines:

- Your child must be free of vomiting, diarrhea, and purulent eye drainage for 24 hours before returning to school.
- Your child should remain home for 24 hours after starting an antibiotic therapy.
