Flu Season Is Here
Flu season is here! If children exhibit fever, sore throat,
diarrhea, vomiting, or congested cough, they must stay
home. Your child must be free of any of the above
symptoms for at least 24 hours before returning to school.
Children younger than five years of age, especially those
younger than two years old, are at high risk of serious flu-
related complications. A flu vaccine offers the best
defense against getting flu illnesses that lead to missed
school days.
Are your children up to date with their immunizations?
Please see the table below for the immunizations schools
require according to age and grade level.
COVID-19 and the Flu
Influenza, commonly known as the flu, and COVID-19
are both contagious illnesses. As influenza season
approaches, we must prepare ourselves and understand the
difference between flu and COVID-19 symptoms. The
two illnesses share many symptoms and a COVID-19 test
can confirm infection.
Similar symptoms of COVID-19 and the Flu:
- Fever, feeling feverish, and/or chills
- Cough
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Fatigue (tiredness)
- Sore throat
- Runny or stuffy nose
- Muscle pain or body aches
- Headache
- Some people may experience vomiting or diarrhea.
However, this is more common in adults.

We are constantly updating our page with the
activities of your children to keep our parents
connected. Follow us on Facebook at “Buena Park
Montessori Academy” to see the exciting academic
and co-curricular activities at our school. Indeed, the
school is always a beehive of activities.
Our parents have asked how they could further help their
children at school. Doing homework with the children is one
way to do this, as it gives the parents a perspective on their
child’s academic progress. Another way is reading with your
child. Parents may have their children read to them or help the
children read a favorite book. This routine is an excellent way to
develop a life-long love for reading.
