Flu Cases on the Rise in Washington Schools

The Washington School District has been able to avoid the flu season this year but attendance rates are beginning to drop. Generally when a school dips below a 90 percent attendance rate, it starts to have a problem. The High School and Middle School seem to be fine at this point but a few elementary schools are hovering around that 90 percent rate. Both South Point and Fifth Street have seen a nearly 5 percent drop in the last week and now are only slightly over 90 percent. Cambellton and Augusta are only slightly better around 92 percent. Not all or even most absences are attributed to confirmed cases of influenza but a drop in attendance in the schools is a good indicator that Washington is officially fighting the flu.
