We are starting to see more illnesses as it's that time of year. It is very important your child stay home if not feeling well as we do not want to spread it.

Reminder from the Student/Parent Handbook: Illness and Returning to School
For fevers over 100 degrees, vomiting or diarrhea, children must stay home. Children with vomiting or diarrhea during the night or before school in the morning should be kept home that day. Children must be fever/vomiting free for 24 hours without the use of Tylenol/Motrin before returning to school. Students with strep throat or pink eye must be on antibiotics for 24 hours before returning to school.

Thanks for all your help in keeping our students healthy!
