SLC Cougar Paws

We are HAPPY to be at the SLC!!


Parking at the SLC

We have brand new visitor and 15 min parking spots in our lot. These spots ARE NOT to be used for drop off and/or walker line pickup. Please continue to use the car line for drop off. It is a very crazy time in the parking lot during arrival and dismissal and we do not want ANYTHING to happen to the children. Children must be supervised at all times while they are in the parking lot. The spots are to be used if you need to run something into school, guest reading, cafeteria help, meetings, etc. There are also 4 traveling teachers spots that are ONLY for our teachers that come to the SLC to teach, so please do not use these spots.

Thank you very much!

Notes from Nurse DiMaio

Rotavirus Information

Rotavirus is a stomach virus. It is common in young children and seems to be prevalent in winter and spring, December through June.

Once exposed to the virus, it can take approximately 2 days for symptoms to appear. Children and adults alike are susceptible to the virus even if they have been vaccinated against it. Those that have been vaccinated are less likely to have symptoms.

Symptoms can include severe, watery diarrhea which can last 3-8 days, vomiting, fever and abdominal pain. The virus can lead to loss of appetite, and dehydration which can cause dizziness and restlessness.

While ill with the virus, it is important to get lots of rest and drink plenty of fluids. Please call your doctor if your child is not able to eat or drink or has a high fever or is very weak.

Your child should not return to school until they have not had any diarrhea, vomiting or fever for 24 hours, at least.

Parents, please remember to add a spare set of clothes to your child's book bag for accidental spills or toileting accidents.

If your child is ill, please do not send them to school. A sick child cannot learn effectively.

A sick child will infect others in class creating more opportunities for illness.

Practice good hand washing skills at home.

Please remember to send in all updated physical and dental forms as soon as possible.


If your child needs to have any medication at school such as an Epi-pen, inhaler or prescription medication, we need a medication form or action plan signed by the child's doctor.

If you have any questions for the nurse, please e-mail me at or call me at #610-690-3115.

Let's have a healthy, safe, year at the SLC !!!!
