If there's anyone you should take tips from to avoid getting the flu, it's teachers. Surrounded by children all day, it's a wonder that teachers' benefits packages don't come with 50+ sick days.

While every classroom is different, these 10 rules will help prevent your child from getting the flu this school year.
