MANOR, Texas (KXAN) — There’s been an increase in flu-like symptoms at the Manor Early Learning Center with “just over 10%” of students missing school Friday, Jan. 10 and Monday, Jan. 13, according to a spokesperson for Manor ISD.

The district says this is the first flu outbreak.

The school district is asking parents to keep their child at home if he/she is running a fever and/or has been diagnosed with the flu. Manor ISD nursing staff is monitoring students and taking appropriate precautions in caring for our students.

Students may return when they have been cleared by their doctor or have been fever free for 24 hours without fever-reducing medication. 

Manor ISD says approximately 20 custodians were on-hand over the weekend to clean and fully disinfect the campus and Pre-Kindergarten shuttle buses.
