We will be closed on January 1, 2019 to celebrate the new year.

Kids Say the Darndest Things

Ms. Faris was outside with the children and referred to one of the girls as "Little Miss." Another child spoke up angrily, "She's not Little Miss, I'm Little Miss." When Ms. Faris asked why she responded, "Because Miss Ream said so!"

Health Alert

The county has contacted us regarding an outbreak of pertussis (whooping cough) in the valley. We are at HAN Alert which conveys the highest level of importance. They are advising that if your child shows the symptoms of whooping cough you take them to a doctor immediately. The symptoms include runny nose, low grade fever, mild to severe cough lasting more than 1 week.

Cold & Flu Season--Sick Policy

For the protection of all the children, and our staff, your child should be kept at home if signs of illness are showing such as:

a. Temperature of 101 degrees or more (must be fever free without medication for 24 hours before returning)
