Health Office Reminder

Parents and Guardians- Please continue to follow Tri County Health Department recommendations and be considerate of others. If your student isn’t feeling well, has been exposed to anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19, or if anyone in your home is showing major symptoms of Covid , such as a loss of taste or smell, new or worsening cough, fever, shortness of breath, is being tested for the virus due to these symptoms, please keep your student home from school until you know for sure. It is better for one student to be out, than a whole class.

Please remember to fill out the Daily Health Screen that is emailed to you if your child is not feeling well. If your child is sick and you fill out the form, there is no need to call our office, your student will be excused. Also please notify the front office and excuse your child if he/she is absent for any other reason. We are in the home stretch! Let’s finish strong! Thank you.
