A Healthy Place to Live and Learn

Dear Parent:


As part of the Olympia School District's commitment to maintaining a healthy learning environment, the following guidelines are directly related to flu symptoms and are provided to assist you in determining when to keep your child at home.


  • The flu is usually accompanied by a fever of 100 to 102 degrees and can last up to four (4) days.
  • Students should stay at home until they have a normal temperature for at least 24 hours,without the assistance of medication.
  • General aches, pains, fatigue and weakness also accompany the flu and make it difficult for students to actively participate in the school day. Until students can fully participate in the school day they should remain at home.
  • It is common for those with the flu to have chest discomfort and a cough. Until the chest discomfort has passed and the cough has lessened students should remain at home.


These guidelines are meant to help decrease illnesses at school and allow your child to be ready and able to fully participate in school. As a school we are vigilantly working to clean surfaces.

Please remind your students not to share drinks and food and to wash their hands frequently. By working together, we can help prevent the spread of illness and keep our children the healthiest they can be. If you have any questions, please contact your school nurse at 360-596-3200.


Thank you,

Michael Cimino, Principal
