💊😷 Important News from our Nurse 👩⚕️
As a reminder, ALL students who are leaving due to illness must be evaluated by the campus nurse first. Even in those times when students communicate directly to their parents through text or phone call. They will be directed to the nurse prior to leaving. We do this so that we can closely monitor students' signs and symptoms to determine when they can safely return to school. Thank you for your understanding as we do our best to keep Yellowjackets healthy and keep germs from spreading!
