Lynhaven Elementary School

Flu Season is Here. Take Precautions.

We want all students to be healthy at school!

The flu virus and other respiratory “bugs” are most common during the fall and winter. Health professionals recommend several effective precautions to help slow the spread of germs that cause respiratory (nose, throat, and lungs) illnesses, like the flu.

  1. Get a flu vaccine each year.
  2. Avoid contact with people who are sick.
  3. Cover coughs and sneezes.
  4. Wash hands frequently.
  5. Get plenty of rest.

If your child does become ill, please report the absence by calling our attendance line at (408) 341-7000 ext. 4851. You can leave a message here. 

If your child does not have healthcare insurance, please contact our Community Liaison, Noelia Smith at nsmith [at] or (408) 556-0368 extension 4839 for information about no-cost or low-cost insurance program options.
