From The Principal


With flu, strep, and stomach bugs going around, here are a few reminders for when your child is sick. We have been implementing deep cleaning to our building every night to try to keep sickness to a minimum.

  • Students must be fever free and vomit free for 24 hours before returning to school.
  • Please turn in doctor's notes for an excused absence.
  • Notify teachers ahead of time, and we can get your student's work for you.

School Report Cards

Our school report card is now out for the 2016-2017 school year. Please see the attached form for more information. Full reports are available in the office.

o Fever- Students have to be fever free for at least 24hrs prior to returning to school

o Vomiting/diarrhea: Students must be vomit free for 24hrs before returning to school

o Reddened eye with watering and/or crusting

When in doubt, consult your child's pediatrician.

Learning Self-Discipline!

Parents, self-discipline is a great character trait that is developed through examples you set, as well as by direct teaching. Here are some tips to help your children learn self-discipline:

- Show them how to cooperate with others. This can teach teamwork.

- Express why you make certain decisions. This can teach making good choices.

- Reward their responsible decisions with positive words of affirmation.
