ECMS selected for FLUency program

Special to Atmore News

Escambia County Middle School was accepted into Kinsa’s FLUency program for the 2019/2020 flu season. ECMS school nurse Alice Stewart, RN, worked over the summer to get the school accepted in to the Kinsa FLUency program. ECMS is the only school in Escambia County selected to be a part of this amazing program.
Kinsa’s FLUency program is a school health initiative that enables schools and parents to detect and respond to spreading illness more quickly, keeping kids and classrooms healthier. All families and staff in accepted schools can receive a free Kinsa Thermometer and join a private group on the Kinsa app to see the overall health of their school, including common symptoms and illnesses going around.
ECMS received their first shipment of Kinsa Smart Thermometers last week. The deadline to sign up to be part of the Kinsa FLUency family and receive your free Smart Thermometer is October 31. Parents may go to the Escambia County Middle School Facebook page or contact ECMS school nurse Alice Stewart to get more information on how to sign up to receive their free Smart Thermometer.
