Assistant Principals' Corner

from the Office of Cassandra Jackson

Attached is an “Everyday Preventive Action” plan that can assist in fighting the spread of germs such as the FLU. As well as a “Too Sick for School” information sheet. Please take the time out to read the attached flyers especially since we are in "flu season". Also a reminder that no student should be wearing a mask unless they have provided documentation to the clinic and have received approval from an administrator. Please feel free to contact the clinic if you have any additional concerns or questions. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
