If you find that your child has lice, please call the school to let them know. You need to keep them home to treat and they will need to stay home from school until they are nit free. Once you no longer find nits, the child can return to school and is required to come straight to the office to be checked and declared nit free to return to class.
Please refer to the additional information below.
Some good habits for all to remember during this time of sickness are:
1-WASH your hands for 20 seconds
2-DO NOT cough into your hands.
3-DO NOT sneeze into your hands.
4-Above all, DO NOT put your fingers into your eyes, nose or mouth!
Lets all do our part to keep ourselves and those around us healthy!
There has been a case of Chicken Pox reported to the Elementary School on Friday April 27. Chicken Pox infection appears 10-21 days after exposure to the virus and usually lasts 5-10 days. The rash begins with small, red spots that develop into blisters which become scabs. The rash may be the first sign of the illness, sometimes fever. The virus spreads from person to person by direct contact or through the air. Although Chicken Pox can be mild, it may be a serious illness in some. The vaccine is effective in preventing the illness or it can help lessen the disease. If you have any children or adults in your home who are not immunized please talk to your doctor.
