Several weeks ago, Springfield School District coordinated with the Springfield Police Department to develop more frequent visits to our schools. We are very appreciative of everything our police department does for our district, and we look forward to their increased presence in our schools. Thank you for helping to keep us safe!

Nurse notes from Mrs. DiMaio

Please read the information below.

Healthy children make better learners

Please remember that if your child is feeling ill and had has a fever that they should not return to school until they are fever free for 24 hours following the last dose of Tylenol or Motrin. When diarrhea or vomiting happens, they should be home for 24 hours after the last episode or, at least, through one full school day. This will help to curtail the spread of illness. This winter we have seen already MANY students with Strep throat and the stomach virus.

Dental Forms

Many Kindergarten students still do not have a dental report in their records here. If you have not turned in a form for your child, please send in. If you have asked for your child to be seen by the school dental hygienist, she will be visiting the school in the Spring.
