Flu Information
Hi Parents - flu season is underway!

We are working closely with Granville Vance Public Health to monitor flu conditions and make decisions about the best steps to take. Since flu conditions can become more severe, it is imperative we follow the steps below to prevent the spread of flu within our schools:

- Students are encouraged to wash hands thoroughly.
- The School Nurses will monitor students and staff for flu-like symptoms.
- Students and staff will be sent home immediately if they have flu-like symptoms.

We ask that you don't send children to school if they are sick. Any child who is sick at school will be sent home. Staying home when sick will allow your children to rest and allows you to monitor their health status closely.

Flu symptoms include:
- A 100 F or higher fever or feeling feverish (not everyone with the flu has a fever)
- A cough and/or a sore throat
- Headaches and/or body aches
- Chills
- Unusual fatigue
- Nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea (most common in children)

Please help us keep everyone healthy and safe!
GCS is Hiring!
Granville County Public Schools is committed to the safety and well-being of its students and staff. All school facilities are being tested for air quality by an independent, certified laboratory. The results of these tests are posted to the website below and any additional action steps will be communicated to all members of the school community.

On October 11, 2017, 21 random air samples were taken throughout the Butner-Stem Middle School campus. The results showed a normal indoor air fungal ecology in all areas of the school except for one locations in a hallway area. The official reports are posted below which recommended follow-up testing in the affected areas.

On October 18, the independent laboratory conducted follow-up sample testing at the school. The results are posted below along with the recommendations. GCPS is following up to comply with all of these action steps and will continue to monitor the situation carefully.
