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 on a daily basis in order to provide the most complete public health surveillance data.
  • Participating schools will be given access to a simple and easy-to-use web reporting tool to provide total counts of student absenteeism as well as those absent with ILI. This process typically takes less than 15 minutes to complete!
  • The NH School Nurse Toolkit: Acute Respiratory Illness (ARI) Adobe Acrobat Reader Symbol has instructions on how to complete and submit the daily student absenteeism reports. In addition, it contains a toolkit with samples of letters to parents (English and Spanish), guidance on acute respiratory illness, and posters with handouts.
  • Please contact the Bureau of Infectious Disease Control at 603-271-4496 in order to participate and enroll your school!
