Flu Season

(Washington, CT)

Devereux Glenholme Articles
Flu SeasonWashington, CT - The spring of 2009 introduced us all to the perils of the H1N1 flu virus. Throughout the summer, the tides have moved wildly in both directions. At Devereux Glenholme, we continue to work closely with the authorities in the state of CT and protocols continue to be developed. Among Ms. Sealund, Ms. Cooper, Ms. Campbell and many local health individuals, we remain informed and proactive for the busy fall flu season that is being predicted.

Vaccines are being developed and tested and as we await, all schools, both public and private, recommend students and staff to remain home if they are ill. The new recommendation is that they may return after they are free of fever for 24 hours. Hand washing and avoiding ill people are key to avoiding the H1N1 flu virus.

Devereux Glenholme is an exceptional boarding school for students with special needs, which offers an individually prescribed learning environment with a steadfast academic curriculum. Using our effective individualized services, we apply a positive behavior support model focused on development of social skills and lifelong strategies for success. The school’s milieu therapy addresses varying levels of academic, social and special needs development in boys and girls ages 10-18 and postgraduates. We prepare graduates for continued education in traditional day schools, boarding schools, colleges and universities.
