Health News:

There are a few cases of "flu" being reported in our area.  There is high flu activity in Rhode Island. If your child is not feeling well in the morning, please be sure he/she does not have a fever and is eating and drinking normally before sending your child to school.  We follow the Department of Public Health directive that a student must be fever-free for 24 hours WITHOUT the use of fever reducing medications before returning to school.  Your child should be eating and drinking normally and have the energy to participate fully in the activities of the school day.  AND, it is not too late to consider getting flu shots for your entire family, if you have not done so yet.  Flu season is just beginning!
