IT'S COLD AND FLU SEASON:  

For the health of our students and staff, if your child is exhibiting symptoms of illness  (cough, congestion, sore throat, fever, chills, etc)  PLEASE keep them home from school until they are symptom-free for 24 hours OR they are cleared to return, in writing,

from their MD.


ATTENTION PARENTS:

Please note that the nurse DOES NOT carry allergy medicine or any form of cold medicine.  If your child needs daily allergy medicine or has symptoms of a cold, those medications must be taken at home  (unless a prior arrangement has been made with the nurse).  Please remind your child to take their allergy medicine EVERY DAY DURING ALLERGY SEASONS.
