Keeping Us Healthy at Avoca West
Thank you all for doing your part in welcoming Nurse Ng and in working with her to keep our students and staff healthy as we roll into cold and flu season. As a reminder, any symptomatic student must show a negative COVID test (home tests are fine) before returning to school. Students must also be fever free without the help of medicine for at least 24 hour hours -- and the same guidelines hold for vomit and diarrhea. Feel free to reach out to Nurse Ng at email@example.com with any questions or to share test results. Stay healthy!
Veteran's Day Slideshow & Breakfast
Please consider adding to our Avoca West Veteran's Day slideshow (linked below). This is your chance to spotlight a veteran in your lives and will be shown in our front hall display at Avoca West and during the Veteran's Day breakfast which will take place at Marie Murphy. In order to do add your photos, please:

- Make a copy of a slide to customize with the picture(s) and name(s) of your veteran(s). OR
- ADD a slide to customize with your favorite veterans in your lives.
You'll see that I've done a slide to get things started. Anything goes! Thanks in advance for your contributions.
