Dear Families,
The flu has become a focus recently in the news, especially the Bird Flu. The Enumclaw School District is working on an overall district pandemic flu plan which will be in place this fall. Part of this plan will be to keep you informed about the flu and emergency information if it should develop in our area.

Please find attached an informational guide provided by the Washington State Department of Health. The purpose of the guide is to answer some of your questions about a flu pandemic and simple things that you can do to prepare. We will continue to educate our students and staff on disease prevention; the safety of our students will continue to be our highest priority.

If you have questions or would like to speak with someone, please feel free to contact me directly (360.802.7101) or Gerrie Garton (360.802.7629). We truly appreciate your partnership in keeping the children of our communities safe and healthy.

Dr. Arthur Jarvis
