Kinsa’s school health program, FLUency, reduces the spread of contagious illnesses in schools. The program is completely free for public elementary schools. Last year Kinsa supported thousands of schools, makes yours next!
By participating, all families and staff in your school get a free award-winning Kinsa smart thermometer. School nurses also get a dashboard of aggregated, anonymous illness trends by grade, so you know what illnesses are going around.
For the past several years, I’ve signed my school up for a free school health program, FLUency. Not only does the program EMPOWER families and staff with free smart thermometers + medical guidance app, but it also helps ALERT ME to symptoms circulating the halls, allowing my health room to stay one step ahead. Applications for this program are now open for the 2022-23 school year! I hope you apply, it’s truly a wonderful program – Holly Giovimonitor of School Nursing Facebook Group
