As a reminder, if your child is absent from school for any reason, please call the nurse’s office/attendance line to report the absence. We ask that you do this in addition to notifying the classroom teacher. Additionally, as we enter cold/flu season, our surveillance of illness increases both at school and in the community. Please assist us by reporting the symptoms your child is experiencing when home ill. Keeping your child home when he or she is sick is the best practice for limiting the spread of illness. If you have any questions regarding the flu, do not hesitate to call the Nurse’s Office.
