Dublin City Schools last week notified parents on steps that will be taken as the flu season begins.

In a letter sent to parents by Superintendent David Axner, students were advised to properly wash hands, not share personal items and cover sneezes and coughs.

"We anticipate we will see an increase in flu activity throughout the schools," the letter said.

Signs of the flu include a fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, body aches and headache, and the letter said parents must make arrangements to pick up their student if they become sick during school. If a student shows flu symptoms, they will be isolated from other students and sent to the school clinic, the letter said.

Parents are advised to keep sick students at home for at least 24 hours after the fever is gone, the letter said.

Parents will not be notified of every reported case of the flu, the letter said.
