Three Schools to Pilot FLUency Program

Three Schools to Pilot FLUency Program
Posted on 10/08/2018
Student sick days take a toll on families and can negatively affect student achievement.  Families at three city elementary schools will have the chance to reduce the spread of illness through a new FLUency pilot project. 

The program offers free, app-enabled thermometers to families and school staff, which they use to understand their children’s health and the health of those around them.  Pilot schools this year at Booker T. Washington Elementary, Elephant’s Fork Elementary, and Oakland Elementary.  

The FLUency program connects parents and school staff on issues of student health, enabling quicker detection of spreading illness and rapid response to help keep students well and in class.
 The smart thermometer app allow fevers, symptoms and medications to be tracked in a time-stamped log for each family member.  In addition, real-time, personalized guidance helps parents know when to call a doctor and how to make their children feel better.  Schools benefit from earlier detection and response to classroom illness, reducing illness-related absences.
