'Tis the Season...

for colds, coughs, and the flu! Please remember to keep your child home if they exhibit any symptoms. Children MUST be fever-free for24 hours before returning to school. Thank you for your cooperation!

Safety First!

Please remember to email the teachers if your child is going home with a friend at the end of the day...especially if they are in another class. Having this information helps avoid chaos at the end of the day and is ultimately for your child's safety. Thank you!
