It is cold, stomach virus and flu season. We want to remind all parents/guardians to keep children home when they are ill. Children who are sick with flu-like illness or diarrhea/vomiting, should stay home for 24 hours fever-free without fever-reducing medications, and/or 24 hours free of diarrhea/vomiting. Please call your child’s school to report his/her absence. If you have any concerns, please contact your child’s primary care provider for advice.

Our school nurses are always available to support your child when he/she returns to school following an illness.
