Wild Rose Public School Division has confirmed one case of Influenza H1N1 at a school in the division.

The student in question has recovered completely, according to a note posted to the school division’s website on Friday. Siblings within the family have also contracted a flu virus, but it is not the H1N1 strain. Despite that, the family in question has kept the children home from school to prevent the spread of the flu virus.

As a precaution the unnamed school has cleaned classrooms, put hand sanitizer in place in each class and shared advice from Alberta Health and Wellness about how to protect against the spread of the virus.

Parents are being asked to keep their children home from school if they have flu symptoms, including a sudden fever of 38 C or higher, headache, dry cough or muscle aches, especially in the lower back or legs.
