OXFORD – Several cases of H1N1, commonly known as swine flu, have been confirmed in Lafayette School students. Superintendent Mike Foster said in a letter issued Thursday that “a few” students have been infected.
“The cases of H1N1/swine flu that have been reported in the United States, thus far, have been mild and are responding well to treatments,” Foster said.
School maintenance personnel will step up cleaning of school buildings to minimize spreading, but administrators and staff also will refer students with symptoms to the school nurse.
Parents are asked not to send children to school until they have been symptom-free for at least 24 hours without Advil, Tylenol or similar medications.
