Handwashing Tips from Nurse Amy
It is always a good idea to wash your hands with soap and water. Hand sanitizer is good, but the act of actually washing your hands with soap and water is just as important. Please feel free to share this video with your classes. Students and Staff should wash their hands after they use the restroom, when they come in from outside, before they eat snack, after they eat snack, and anytime their hands appear soiled.
Take care. Nurse Amy 🙌
***IMPORTANT*** Vaccinations Required for Enrollment
It is very important that Pre-K going to Kindergarten and 6th graders going to 7th grade get the immunizations noted below. They will NOT be able to start classes next year without them.
Thank you and please let me know if there are any questions or concerns. Pre-K parents and 6th grade parents can send them to me immediately when they are completed up until May 2023.
