Kids Holiday Shop Tomorrow, 12/16
SCIP will be hosting the Kids Holiday Shop tomorrow for students. They will be able to choose a gift for family members to bring home. Thank you to all that have donated. We are still in need of gift bags and wrapping paper if you have any to spare.
A message from our School Nurse
Unfortunately, there are different illnesses circulating in our communities, earlier than in previous years. Please know that if your child is home sick their health is our priority.
Thank you for keeping your kids home when they are sick.
At school, we continue to encourage hand washing and have increased cleaning.
Some things you can do at home are:
Get flu and covid vaccines ( it is not too late)
Practice good hand hygiene by washing hands with soap and water or using hand sanitizer
Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze
Avoid close contact with sick people
Stay home when you are sick
Clean and disinfect surfaces regularly
Get plenty of rest and keep hydrated
Do a covid test if you have symptoms
Call your provider if you have concerns
