From Nurse Martin . . .

Winter Illness

We would like to remind all parents of the importance of keeping sick children home. When a child comes to school ill, he/she can spread illness by coughing, touching his/her nose/mouth and then touching objects that other students come into contact with. Remember that fever is not the only sign of true illness and that fever is usually a late sign of an illness, or an illness that is progressing. If your child is out sick remember to always send in a note from the Dr or a parent note. MISD Health policies are in place to help insure a healthy school where students can learn and grow.

From Mrs. Parks, School Counselor . . .
