Illnesses are on the rise throughout the area. Within the school, there have been some diagnosed influenza cases, as well as some other illnesses (stomach illness, strep throat). Attached is a parent guideline form for influenza.
Please keep children home when they are ill to help prevent spreading illness. Students should be fever free (without fever reducing medication), and/or vomiting, for 24 hours before returning to school.
Remind your children to wash their hands frequently, as well as covering their cough if they have one.
