Fifth-grade students Making Strides for Breast Cancer

Dianne Fonseca is a Breast Cancer survivor who had the opportunity to visit with our fifth-grade students during health classes. Our students learned about cancer and how to prevent it and advocate for a cure. Students have a wonderful opportunity to help others who are battling Breast Cancer.

When your child is absent:

Just a friendly reminder to call into LaPerche before 9:00 am when your child is absent. Let us know what the reason for the absence is in order for us to monitor illnesses within our school community.

Follow up with a written note on the day your child returns from being absent.

Illnesses in the school:

We have had parents reporting Strep already this year.

Colds: be sure to send your child to school with an ample supply of kleenex if they have a cold. Remind them to always wash their hands after blowing their nose.

Pediculosis: for information on the diagnoses, treatment, and prevention of head lice please visit our district website for the Head Lice Guidance for Parents which includes our Pediculosis brochure.

Rashes: If your child develops a rash, please call your health care provider for proper diagnoses and treatment. A note from your health care provider stating they may return to school is needed when your child returns to school.
