Welcome to Four Corners Elementary School, where we are committed to our mission of ensuring the learning of all students at high levels.  We can only accomplish this through the focused work of our dedicated staff, supportive efforts of our families, and strong connections with our community partners. Four Corners is situated on 55 acres in rural Douglas County serving 220 students PK-5.  Our location gives us the opportunity to provide our students with unique experiences such as maple syruping each spring and environmental science lessons in our outdoor classroom on the Burstrom Trail.  I hope you find the information on our website valuable.  If you cannot find the information you need, please feel free to call our main office at 715-399-8911.

Illness Notice

If sick don't go
We continue to see a peak in the number of students (and staff) who are ill.  Please take a minute to read these few important tidbits from the CDC on the difference between the flu and common cold. 
  • Remember to wash your hands frequently with soap and water. 
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze  - and then wash your hands again!!!
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs.  
And lastly, see the attachment on "Everyday Prevention Actions That Can Help Fight Germs, Like Flu" 
From the Center for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC): 

What is the difference between a cold and the flu?

 

The flu and the common cold are both respiratory illnesses but they are caused by different viruses. Because these two types of illnesses have similar symptoms, it can be difficult to tell the difference between them based on symptoms alone. In general, the flu is worse than the common cold, and symptoms are more common and intense. Colds are usually milder than the flu. People with colds are more likely to have a runny or stuffy nose. Colds generally do not result in serious health problems, such as pneumonia, bacterial infections, or hospitalizations. Flu can have very serious associated complications.

 

How can you tell the difference between a cold and the flu?

 

Because colds and flu share many symptoms, it can be difficult (or even impossible) to tell the difference between them based on symptoms alone. Special tests that usually must be done within the first few days of illness can tell if a person has the flu.

 

What are the symptoms of the flu versus the symptoms of a cold?

 

The symptoms of flu can include fever or feeling feverish/chills, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches and fatigue (tiredness). Cold symptoms are usually milder than the symptoms of flu. People with colds are more likely to have a runny or stuffy nose. Colds generally do not result in serious health problems
