With cold and flu season upon us, please take special care to keep yourself and your children healthy. If your child seems unwell, please use your judgement and do not send him or her to school sick. This includes fever, vomitting, or diarrhea, pink eye, strep and rashes. They are probably contagious. Please be sure to take the child to your physician for care and be sure to bring a doctor's note that you he/she was seen and is cleared to return to school. Conversely, should your child become ill during the school day, and you receive a call from the nurse, please make every effort to pick up your child in a timely manner so he or she can get some rest and see a doctor sooner than later. He/she will certainly not be instructionally productive in this case.
While we do not encourage student absences, illneses can not be avoided. This can affect the entire school community. We ask you to help us make this the healthiest season possible.
