CDC - Preparing for the Flu: A Communication Toolkit for Schools

The CDC has come up with an Influenza communications toolkit for schools to provide basic information and communication resources to help school administrators implement recommendations from CDC’s Guidance on 2009 H1N1 and seasonal influenza during the 2009-2010 school year.

The toolkit includes:

  • Fact sheets for schools and teachers on possible action steps to prevent spread of the flu.
  • Fact sheets to inform parents on necessary action steps if a sick child is dismissed from school and must stay home.
  • Fact sheets to inform parents of children who may be at high risk for complications from the flu.
  • Template letters for schools to send to parents about steps the school is taking to prevent spread of the flu.

Posters for schools about influenza prevention as well as the entire toolkit are available on the CDC website at
