The following is a statement issued Monday from Los Alamos Public Schools regarding the flu situation at Los Alamos Middle School:
The number of students at the middle school, exhibiting flu like symptoms, increased from three last Wednesday to 99 at the start of this Monday’s school day.
It is important for the parents and community to know that Los Alamos school administrators and nurses are closely monitoring this trend.
District officials have communicated our absence trend to the Public Education Department in Santa Fe and the New Mexico Center for Infectious Disease Control, both of whom are now monitoring the absence trend in the district.
The district has begun tracking attendance patterns in the elementary and high school as well.
Thus far, the numbers of reported flu-like symptoms has been small.
However, local doctors believe it is just a matter of time before siblings of middle school students report similar illnesses.
As the number of student absences grows, the district has implemented a temporary policy change for the verification of student illnesses.
