Thomas P. Mirabella, the East Penn School District's director of student services, addressed the board of school directors Monday to report on the number of cases of flu throughout district schools.
"We've been monitoring for the past few weeks," Mirabella said.
There have been 77 cases in elementary schools and 61 in secondary schools for a total of 138 student cases.
That translates to 1.7 percent of the student population, he said.
It is below the national average, and it's also below the number of students with flu at the same time last year, he said.
The EPSD website includes a flyer that includes information about recognizing the signs and symptoms of the flu as well as general flu-care guidelines
The district and its physician, Robert Barnes, continue daily monitoring of the recent flu outbreak and how it is affecting the East Penn School District.
