Tustumena Elementary Newsletter

January 22, 2019

Dear Tustumena Families,

We are going strong in the second semester. Cross Country skiing is planned to start next Tuesday, January 29th, not today as originally planned. Conferences are coming in a couple of weeks, on February 7th and 8th. Please continue to dress your children warm for this chilly weather, as they are having fun outside at recess every day. Also, don't forget to come by the school and make a pool noodle monster at our new Maker Space in the lobby.

From Nurse Claudette:

Happy 2019!

As we start off the second half of the year, please remember to follow the following rules regarding sending your child to school.

Do Not send your child to school if:

1). They have had a fever over 100.0 in the past 24 hours.

2). They have vomited once or had 2 episodes of diarrhea in the past 24 hours.

3). If they have red, swollen, itchy eyes draining clear, yellow or green discharge.

Please remember, if your child test positive for lice, you will need to treat them at home. Contact my office if you have questions or concerns about treatment. They will need to be checked by an approved person before returning to the classroom – you must escort them to school for this.

Let’s all work together to keep our school a healthy and happy place!
