SKANEATELES, NY (February 14, 2017) – While Skaneateles Central Schools have fared quite well this season in regards to absences due to sickness, the NYS Health Department is reporting a surge in the number of influenza cases reported this winter.
As a healthy reminder, Mark Snyder – District Health and Safety Officer – has issued an outline of detailed information from the New York State Health Department that may serve as a helpful reminder on flu prevention in the school setting.

Always be sure to:
  • Cover your cough or sneeze
  • Wash your hands
  • Stay home with flu-like symptoms
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces
  • Get a flu shot
