  • Health Services Reminders

    As we navigate through the annual cold/flu season, Shakopee Public Schools encourages parents and guardians to keep students home if they are exhibiting flu-related symptoms such as fever, dry cough, sore throat, headache, extreme tiredness and/or body aches. These symptoms usually begin suddenly and may be severe enough to stop daily activities. The Department of Health offers the following guidance to protect one’s self and others:

    • Avoid being around others who are sick.

    • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or cough or sneeze into your sleeve.

    • Wash your hands often with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

    • Protect infants by not exposing them to large crowds or sick family members when flu is in your community.

    • Do not share drinking cups and straws.

    • Frequently clean commonly touched surfaces (door knobs, refrigerator handles, phones, water faucets).

    If a student will be absent from school, please call their school’s attendance line. In addition to calling the attendance line, positive COVID-19 cases can also be reported using our Optional Self-Reporting tool by clicking here.

    Additionally, the district’s custodial staff has increased their efforts to frequently clean commonly touched surfaces in our schools.
