From the Health Office!
Hello ERMS Families!
As we get into cold and flu season, please remember that hand-washing with warm, soapy water is a good preventative habit that keeps the germs at bay! If you child is ill, please call the Attendance Line at 952-707-2804 (24-hour messaging line). Please include your name, student's name and reason for absence.
If your child is ill at school they are to report to the Health Office and I will phone home. This is the only way your child will be excused for the day. Students leaving ill after emailing or texting parents for early pick up will not be excused. Students leaving the school day early will need to bring a note from home and turn it in to the Front Office for a pass. Parents may also call the Attendance Line or call the Front Office (952-707-2800) to notify the office for early pick up times.
If you have gently used, clean clothing items, we would love to have them! Students often need a quick change of clothing due to variety of situations and we need to be ready to assist them! We would appreciate larger sizes in tee shirts and hoodies, older boy/girl-young men/women sweatpants. Thank you!
We also have some Covid home test kits available in the office, please feel free to stop in and pick some up!
