The flu has many symptoms, some of which may not be present. Here are the common symptoms:
*It's important to note that not everyone with flu will have a fever.
If your child comes down with the flu, watch carefully for signs of
complications. Seek medical attention if your child has difficulty
breathing, appears limp or extremely weak, is confused or does not
respond, has a fever over 104 or a fever that lasts more than 48 hours,
or a very dry mouth with no urine output for 8 hours. Call your child’s
health care provider if you have any questions. Remember, children must
be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.
If you have questions about whether or not your child should attend
school due to illness, please contact your child’s school. Also, your
school’s nurse is a valuable resource to discuss how to avoid the flu,
recognizing symptoms, and how to speed recovery. Please also see “When
to keep your child home” on our Health Services website.

It was emphasized that the philosophy on homework is to reinforce previously learned skills.
If your child seems to be struggling, stop and make a note of what your
child is having difficulties with. Then write a note to your child’s
math teacher to let him or her know. You should not have to explain or
teach a new concept to your child. It is likely that other children have
the same issue, and the teacher needs to know!
What else can parents do to help their children in math? Try some of the following with the homework:
your child to explain to you in full sentences, or in writing, the
concepts they are working on, so that they are turning abstract numbers
and concepts into full fledged ideas.
*Work with your child to model concepts in different ways, using real-life examples
