Second Grade Grandparent's/Special Person Day is Tuesday, November 24

If your child is planning to go out to lunch with their grandparent/special person after Grandparent's/Special Person Day, you must have a note signed by the parents in advance.

Also, please remind your child's guest for Grandparent's Day to park in our school parking lot. Our staff will be parking in the street so the whole lot will be open for them.  We don't want them to be scared off by the cars in the road and think that the lot is full also.

Thank you,  

The Second Grade Team

Nurses Corner:


There are a number of cases of:


STREP THROAT http://www.district196.org/District/Departments/HealthServices/Diseases/TechnicalFactSheet/1665_s6STREPT.pdf


Brrr…..it’s cold outside.  Remember to have your kids dress for the weather.


Gentle reminder of our guidelines to have your child stay home if:


~~Temperature of 100 or greater, may return when under 100 orally and without the use of fever reducers for 24 hours

~~Vomiting or diarrhea, may return when hasn’t had an issue for 24 hours

~~Severe coughing or difficulty breathing (if a nagging, itchy cough, please have child bring water bottle, encourage a lot of water)

~~Open sores on mouth

~~Skin rash or red eye from undetermined cause (if pink eye diagnosed, a MD’s note needed to return or treatment for 24 hours)

~~Head lice and scabies, until treatment complete

~~Any contagious conditions such as strep throat, impetigo, chickenpox, pertussis, mumps, Hep-A, measles, mumps, rubella, shingles, or herpes simples


Always notify me of a contagious illness as I will keep track to see if there are clusters so I can notify the potentially exposed grade level.
