**Thank you 2nd Grade for our weekly challenges!
Mrs. Parks will be hosting a NEW STUDENT LUNCH during grade level lunches on Wednesday, January 9. Any students new to Bennett this school year are welcome. It will be held on the stage.
From Nurse Martin . . .
Now that we are back from the break, it’s a good time to review the McKinney ISD policy for fevers and vomiting. Students can still be contagious for 24 hours after a fever or vomiting, even though they are feeling better! It is important that they stay home from school to keep from spreading illness.
· Students need to be fever free without fever reducing medicine for 24 hours before they return to school.
· Students need to have not vomited in 24 hours before they return to school.
