    REMINDERS FROM NURSE ANGIE

    As we head into cold and flu season, remember...

    • PLEASE keep your child home if they are ill. Encourage them to wash their hands frequently, not share food or drinks with others, cough into their arms, etc. Our staff is working hard to clean frequently touched surfaces in each classroom as well as the whole building.

    • AS ALWAYS – students need to be kept home until 24 hours after the last episode of vomiting/diarrhea and have been fever free without the use of fever reducing medicine for 24 hours. Thank you for helping us to keep our school as healthy as possible!


    IN THE EVENT THAT WE MISS SCHOOL BECAUSE OF BAD WEATHER

    Please be aware that we will “replay the day”. This means that if we miss school on a Day 1, we will have a Day 1 the first day back. If we miss school on a Day 2, we will have a Day 2 on the first day back.


    SAVE THE DATE: NP RED & BLACK BASH
