“... understanding if [a disease] is coming from one grade or one classroom—where we know the kids are clustering together—helps you stem a potential outbreak of flu or another virus”

Kinsa FLUency in Action

School Leaders can easily understand illness levels across all grades in real-time.

Communicating with families on how to best keep their children healthy.
“Last year it was a common occurrence during flu season to have numerous (5-10) students come in from off the bus, or with their parents strictly requesting a temperature check because they didn't have a thermometer at home. That number has decreased to ZERO!”

District Leaders can make data-driven decisions that keep students and staff safe in a smart way.

By knowing how many households are sick, you can focus on stopping the spread while minimizing disruptions to learning.

“Fluency has been [most beneficial] to the teachers! It is great to see the trends going on in each classroom...to know when a classroom needs a scrub-down or when we should be pushing the Vitamin C!”

Parents can make more informed decisions about how to keep their kids and their families healthy.

And with immediate guidance on what to do next when their kiddo falls ill, parents can help them get better faster.
