Selected from thousands of applications for Kinsa’s FLUency program, Fowler School District families will be given Smart Thermometers donated from Kinsa for early detection and containment of the flu.


As schools everywhere gear up to fights flu season, Fowler School District hopes to remain ahead of the bug this year, and keep more kids healthy with the help of Kinsa Smart Thermometers, priced at $19.99 retail, and will be able to see aggregated, anonymous information on any symptoms and illnesses going around the school.


“Sick days are disruptive to learning, challenging for parents who must find childcare, and costly to schools that are already struggling with strapped resources,” explains Kinsa founder and CEO Inder Singh. “In addition to the disruption, it is heartbreaking for both parents and kids when the household is hit with the flu. Since the thermometer is the first thing a parent reaches for when their child falls ill, we designed Kinsa to be smarter, capturing symptoms earlier, and providing guidance on what to do next. We are thrilled to offer select schools a tool to keep more children healthy and in school.”


“Our top priority is keeping our students in class learning,” explained Lorie Diodosio, School Nurse. “With this innovative program, we hope to see the trends affecting our classrooms so that we can contain the spread of illness, increase attendance, and continue giving our students the education they deserve.”


With Kinsa Smart Thermometers, parents can not only see anonymous information on symptoms and illnesses going around, but can also track individual health history for each family member via the companion Kinsa app, to get a quicker, more accurate diagnosis, can share details with another caregiver or physician, and receive guidance on next steps if fever and symptoms are cause for concern.
