Influenza A and strep throat are among a number of illnesses that have been running through Clinton schools in the last few weeks.


As a result, Clinton Elementary School Principal Sasha Young says they saw over 90 kids out at one point last week, and the numbers have been high the last few weeks.



CEO of Warner Hospital and Health Service, Paul Skowron, says the trends seen in the school are reflective in their emergency room, family medicine and walk-in clinic.



Lincoln and Douglas Elementary Schools Principal Beth Wickenhauser sent out an email to parents this week reminding them to not send students back to school until they have been without a fever, diarrhea and vomit-free for 24 hours. 


She indicates a number of illnesses are floating around their buildings right now as well.
