Good Math-ternoon
Math Rocks!
Coming to Franklin next Sunday, February 16!

Get ready to solve puzzles, build cup towers, construct 3D models and more at this year's Good Math-ternoon! Good Math-ternoon is set for Sunday, February 16, from 12–2 p.m. in the Franklin gym. Join your Franklin and Randall friends for a family-friendly afternoon of self-guided exploration, games and puzzles celebrating math. If you have questions about this event or if you would be willing to help with set up, please email Leigh Luedtke at jimandleigh@gmail.com .
The Flu!
Influenza (also known as "the flu") continues to be at high levels in Wisconsin. Symptoms can include a quick onset of fever, fatigue, stuffy nose, sore throat, and cough, among other things. People tend to feel more miserable than with a common cold. Influenza does not cause vomiting (“gastroenteritis” which is sometimes mistakenly called “the stomach flu” causes vomiting).   

The best way to reduce a person’s risk of getting the flu is by getting the flu vaccine. The flu shot cannot give you the flu . It’s not too late to get the flu vaccine; however, the vaccine takes about 2 weeks to work fully.    

The flu is very contagious. It is spread by droplets in the air or direct contact. Remind your child to cover their mouth (with the inside of an elbow) when they cough or sneeze. Wash hands frequently with liquid sanitizer (use the size of a quarter) or soap and water (scrub for at least 20 seconds = two rounds of the “Happy Birthday” song).  Please keep your child home if they have symptoms of the flu .
