Notes from the nurse

We are in the middle of flu season, and we want to help keep our students and staff healthy. Please keep your child home if they have a temperature greater than 100 degrees. Our district policy states that your child must be fever free for 24 hours without the aid of fever reducing medications before returning to school. Feel free to contact the school nurse if you have any questions.
