Beginning shortly after Thanksgiving break and lasting well into the spring, flu season strikes fear into the hearts of students and teachers alike. The large quantity of students at Elkhorn South and other high schools around the nation make schools prime breeding grounds for the virus. As the number of illness related absences peak during this season, teachers and students must practice cleanliness to avoid catching the virus. Proper flu protection protocol recommends frequent hand washing, covering coughs, and avoiding nail-biting and nose picking. When coughing or sneezing, direct the cough into a tissue or into the upper sleeve. Coughing or sneezing directly into one’s hands can spread flu germs and endanger fellow students. Washing with soap or alcohol based sanitizer will kill lingering germs. Minimizing exposure to flu germs will provide the best protection against missing classes.
