Reminders from Nurse Jenny

Cold and flu season are here. Please remember that if students have a temperature they need to stay home until they have been fever free for 24 hours without any medication. That policy also includes if they have been vomiting or if they have diarrhea. Please encourage hand washing!

It is a good practice to check your student regularly for lice. If you are not sure how to do that the following link has a lot of helpful information


Please report to the nurse if your student has the flu, strep, a fever or lice. All information is kept confidential.
