Assistant Chattooga County School Superintendent Jeff Martin released a letter on Friday asking parents of students in the Chattooga County School System to help combat the spread of flu.

In the letter, the school system asks parents to keep their student at home if they test positive for the flu, and until they are free of symptoms.  If your student has a fever, they should remain at home another 24 hours before returning to school.
