Over the past few months, the flu, strep throat, allergies, and many other common colds have hit students and staff hard, causing many absences to occur. Students are having to make up multiple days of schoolwork, as well as their extracurricular activities, and some teachers have been out as well due to these illnesses.

“I started to get a migraine at school,” said freshman Aubrey Hazlip who had the flu. “I thought I was getting strep throat, but I ended up getting the flu.”

The school nurse has also been seeing an increase in office visits as contagious illnesses have begun to spread. In order to minimize exposure to other students, the SSC custodial staff will be conducting a full de-sanitizing wipe-down this weekend on February 9 and 10.

“I felt like I was dying,” Hazlip said. “I couldn’t breathe. I kept coughing and sneezing. My throat felt like it was bleeding.”

This topic really hits home for me because over the past two months I have been dealing with a sinus infection as well as bronchitis. I am not the only one either. There are so many more students and staff at BHS that have been miserable with contagious illnesses this season and they’re reaping the consequences.

“It was terrible,” senior Oliva Whitfill, who also had the flu, said. “All I did and wanted to do was sleep. It was so painful.”
