A NOTE FROM THE PRINCIPAL 💜💛
HELLO, FARMER FAMILIES!
We hope you are doing well! We are starting to see some sickness going around here at school ('tis the season, right?), so we have shared the NLCS "Too Sick For School Policy" below. We are also encouraging our students to wash their hands and use sanitizer frequently.
This is such a fun time of year in the school and we are excited for all this time of year brings! Please make sure you check out the entire newsletter for information about upcoming programs, events, etc.
Please don't hesitate to reach out if you need anything at all. We are here to help! Feel free to reach out using the contact information listed below. If you'd like to unsubscribe from the email list, or would prefer NOT to receive the Farmer Friendly each week, click "Unsubscribe from emails by Kelsey Pace" at the very bottom of the page.
Thank you for all you do and for partnering with us. We are lucky to have you and your kiddos here at Shawswick!

NURSE'S NOTES 👩🏼⚕️
Influenza (Flu) Facts:
The Flu virus typically peaks between the months of January and February
Symptoms of Flu include: fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches, fatigue (tiredness)
The CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone 6 months of age and older as the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease
In addition to getting vaccinated, take everyday preventive steps like staying away from sick people and washing your hands to reduce the spread of germs
If you are sick with flu, stay home from work or school to prevent spreading influenza to others
Please contact your child’s healthcare provider or the Lawrence County Health Department 812-275-3234 to schedule a Flu Vaccine.
