February Boomerang Award

This year, Gayman will continue to accept nominations for the Boomerang Award, which is our way of honoring students who best demonstrate their own developmental assets. What are Developmental Assets? Students possessing a combination of “40 Assets” are typically most successful in school and in life. These assets have the power to influence choices young people make and help them become caring, responsible adults. For a complete listing of the 40 Developmental Assets visit: www.

Tis the "Flu" Season

It’s That Time of the Year!

Flu season is upon us. Our nursing staff would like to remind parents of procedures to follow when a child is sick:

· If your child develops a fever (100° or higher) he/she may not return to school until free of fever without fever medication for 24 hours.

· Diarrhea or vomiting during the previous 24 hours. Your child may not return to school until his/her appetite has returned to normal.

If you have been contacted by the school nurse to pick up your child due to illness, please make every effort to do so within a reasonable amount of time (no longer than 1 hour). If you are unable to pick up your child within the hour, please provide the nurse with an emergency back-up plan. The nurse’s office has a limited amount of space to take care of sick children. Therefore, every effort must be made to release children as quickly as possible.
