Season of Illness

We have had plenty of illness in the recent weeks, which comes with this time of the year. We have had several cases of flu, gastrointestinal virus, colds, and more. We are doing an extra thorough job of disinfecting, reminding about hand washing, etc. in order to keep our students healthy.

Please help us by keeping your children home from school if they exhibit signs of any communicable illnesses including fever, vomiting, etc. We want to get everyone through the winter healthy.
