AUSTIN, Texas — More than 10% of Manor Independent School District students were absent last Friday and on Monday thanks to a flu outbreak, according to a spokesperson for the district.
Manor ISD sent a letter to parents on Friday, informing them of flu-like symptoms identified at the Manor Early Learning Center and what measures the district is taking to prevent the illness from spreading.
Parents were asked to keep their children home if they had a fever or were diagnosed with the flu. The letter said the Manor Early Learning Center and buses would be sanitized over the weekend.
On Monday, the district sent a similar letter to parents confirming all the steps the district took to ensure the well-being of the students.
A spokesperson told KVUE approximately 20 custodians worked over the weekend to fully clean and disinfect both the campus and buses.
