Seasonal Health Tips
In an effort to decreaae the spread of illness at school, the school district woud like to remind you of the following:

1.  Check your child for flu symtoms.  Keep your child home if he/she has a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher.  Children with flu will need to stay home until the fever is gone for 24 hours without taking medicines to reduce fever.  
2.  If your student has diarrhea, they must be diarrhea free for 24 hours before returning to school.  Diarrhea is defined as 3 or more episodes of loose stool in a 24 hour period.
3.   A student must not come to school if vomiting 2 or more times in 24 hours.  A student should have 1 or 2 meals wthout vomiting before returning to school.
4.  Practice frequent hand washing and covering your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze at home and school.

Thank you for helping us keep our school a healthy place to learn!

One School, One Book
Encourage the love of reading.  Ask your child about One School, One Book.  Our school is reading The World According to Humphrey.  If your child is in 3rd, 4th, or 5th grades, they will bring home their own copy of this book.  Read together as a family and talk about what happens in the book.  Younger students K, 1st, and 2nd will be reading the book in class.  Be sure to ask them about the chapter they heard each day.
Many chapters will be read by community leaders and there will be daily trivia questions!
