Richfield Elementary Friendly Reminders:

~Drop Off Procedure reminders: Please be sure that when you drop off your child that they enter the building before you are pulling away.It is important that all students have entered safely through an unlocked door. We are asking that there are 4 cars along the sidewalk so please pull down so that we can unload several students at a time. Please be careful not to run over the cones.

~Recess reminders: Students are reminded to dress appropriately for the weather with boots, hats, gloves, snow pants and coats. It is helpful to send an extra set of clothes with your child, to keep at the top of their locker, in case clothes get wet while outside for recess. Please label these clothes.

Richfield Clinic Reminders:

We have come to the time of year to expect cold and flu symptoms.

Please keep in mind the guidelines below when deciding if your child should come to school.

Any child with the following symptoms should stay home:

-A fever 100 degrees or higher. A child should not come back to school until the temperature is normal for 24 hours without medication.
-vomiting or diarrhea
-any rash

Have a safe and healthy winter!
