Mesa Public Schools Response to Novel H1N1 Flu (Swine Flu)
The health and safety of students and staff is a priority of Mesa Public Schools. As the school year gets underway, we are very much aware of another potential surge of Novel H1N1 Flu, also known as “Swine Flu.”
We understand the public health concern of our parents, staff, and community. Mesa Public Schools is in regular communication with the Arizona Department of Health and the Maricopa County Health Department. These departments monitor our state for flu cases and will advise us regarding further flu outbreak developments in Arizona.
The staff in our Health Offices will monitor students for flu-like symptoms and will be sending home students who are sick with fevers and coughs. Under the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we have planned responses that focus on prevention and preparation.
Mesa Public Schools wants to partner with you and prevent the spread of seasonal and Novel H1N1 flu in our community. We have provided easy access links to public health departments, information, and community resources. Please click on the Parent Frequently Asked Questions to start.
