Happy Thanksgiving! It’s the season to give thanks and honor our Veterans. We would like to start this month with a health and safety announcement for a healthy fall and winter:

Upon entering their school building, all children should wash their hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer. If your child is running a temperature of 100 degrees or more, they may not attend school and must be fever free for 24 hours without the aid of a fever reducer before they will be allowed to return. Should your child receive a contagious diagnosis from their doctor, please inform us immediately as it’s our responsibility to inform other families that their child may have been exposed to a specific illness.

If you are sick or have sick family members with you, please do not come into the building. Simply call ahead and we’ll be glad to meet you at the door to get your child or bring them out to you. These rules are for the safety of your child as well as their classmates and teachers. Thanks for your cooperation!
