A LARGE NUMBER OF ABSENTEES DUE TO FLU, STOMACH VIRUS AND STREP THROAT IN CHEATHAM COUNTY SCHOOLS.

The Cheatham County School District issued a statement last week stating there has been an increase in illnesses amongst students, faculty and staff.  Most are experiencing symptoms leading to diagnoses of Flu, Strep Throat and stomach viruses.

Cheatham County School District is asking parents and students to help maintain a healthy school environment by staying home when sick and not returning to school until symptom and fever free for 24 hours.


Cheatham News has spoken with several parents of children who have been sick and many are running high fevers.  Please don’t hesitate contacting your child’s pediatrician or health care provider if you have any concerns or questions regarding their health or illness.

Additionally there have been several children seen in doctor’s offices and Emergency Rooms that have been diagnosed with Croup, Bronchitis and various upper respiratory virus and infections. Several babies in Middle Tennessee have been hospitalized for RSV, a serious upper respiratory infection in children under the age of two years.   Numerous school age children have had the flu develop into Pneumonia and cases of Mono have also been reported.

Cheatham News will focus on local and county news including politics, breaking news, community schools, sports, city and county council meetings but there’ll be more the local news. I aspire to focus on what life is like, in our little corner of the world, where my family and I live in a small southern town. The southern sayins’, ole wives tales, recipes and mannerisms are a part of history I’d like to keep alive in the fast paced world of today. It brings me joy to share the uniqueness of life in a small southern town.
