The Bureau of Infectious Disease Control tracks and records total absenteeism and specifically absenteeism for influenza-like illness (ILI) for all schools in the State of New Hampshire. Collecting this information assists to evaluate attendance records to track ILI for any possible outbreaks or clusters of disease.
The Division of Public Health Services (DPHS) has been tracking student absenteeism and students absent for ILI in New Hampshire schools since 2009. All schools are strongly encouraged to report student absenteeism in order to provide the most complete public health surveillance data.
Participating schools are asked to report daily to the Bureau of Infectious Disease Control. Schools are given access to a simple and easy-to-use web reporting tool to provide total counts for student absenteeism and those absent with ILI. This process typically takes less 15 minutes for school nurses to complete.
Please contact the Bureau of Infectious Disease at 603-271-4496 in order to enroll your school.
