Hello Firebird families,

Isn't technology wonderful? Technology helps us stay informed and in touch with family and friends and the events of the world. Many of our GP students use technology to communicate with parents, especially when they are not feeling well. Did you know it is DVUSD policy that ALL ill or injured students be screened by the school nurse prior to being discharged home? It is important that your student see the nurse prior to leaving so that details of their illness/injury can be recorded in their health record and the nurse can screen for communicable diseases. This can be a very important step in preventing other students from becoming ill. So please, remind your student that they must see the nurse prior to being picked up for illness or injury.
