By using the Kinsa Smart Thermometer and Kinsa's free mobile app, campus staff and participating families will be able to see which illnesses are going around the school--all anonymously.
“Sick days are disruptive to learning, challenging for parents who must find childcare, and costly to schools that are already struggling with strapped resources,” explains Kinsa founder and CEO Inder Singh. “Because the thermometer is the first device you grab when your child falls ill, we turned it into a support system to keep the entire family healthy. We are pleased to partner with Lysol to offer schools a tool to help keep more children healthy and in school.”
Mrs. Diana Wagner, principal at Jubilee-Lake View University Prep, says keeping their students in class learning is a top priority. She said that with this innovative program, they hope to see the trends affecting their classrooms so that they can help contain the spread of illness, keep students healthy, and increase attendance.
The FLUency program, now in its fourth year, has already helped over 60,000 families, and 90 percent of participating school nurses believe FLUency kept them more informed of illnesses going around their school.
