It’s Still Flu Season : (

From the Nurses’ Office:

It is flu season and we are seeing increased flu cases in the school. The symptoms vary from fever to no fever, headache, sore throat, tiredness, body aches, and cough. If your child has any of these symptoms, please have them seen by their doctor.

Please be mindful of others and keep your child at home if they are sick. Sending a child to school sick puts other children, teachers and staff at risk.

We would like to remind everyone to wash your hands and cover your coughs and sneezes.  To help decrease the spread of flu, wipe down surfaces at home and work with bleach based wipes.

Stay healthy,
