A Message from our Kennerly Nurse

Please remember to pack an extra change of clothes, including socks, in your student’s backpack. We have been having a lot of accidents that require a change of clothes at school. This includes students falling in the mud outside during recess.

Please also note that if your student has a fever, they need to be home for 24 hours fever free without receiving fever reducing medication before returning to school.
