Dear Parents/Guardians/Grandparents/and Interested Citizens:
This Newsletter focuses on bringing you up to date on some of the recently unfolding, newsworthy events.
Flu Information: Please be aware that several students were sent home today with fevers. We are not sure if its flu related however, it’s a good time to take precautions. Please have a conversation with your children about washing their hands thoroughly, not sharing food and so on. If your child has a fever, please avoid sending them to school so that we may minimize the spread of illness. For your convenience, you will find several links to websites that offer information.
Be aware that over the counter cold medicine without the approval of your care provider should not be given to children. Additionally, aspirin should not be given to children or teenagers who have the flu.
