As we move into flu and cold season, we wanted to send out a few reminders to help you keep your student healthy.  The flu virus can live in a person’s respiratory tract and is usually spread via direct contact with an infected person who is sneezing or coughing or from contact with hands or objects/surfaces contaminated with the virus.

Here are some illness prevention reminders:

  • Please remind students to wash their hands frequently.
  • Cover nose and mouth with a sleeve or tissue when coughing or sneezing (It is not recommended that students cover their mouth or nose with their hands since this can spread the illness).
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth to prevent the spread of germs
  • Avoid close contact with those who have symptoms.
  • Seek health care for you or your child if needed. 
  • If your child has a fever over 100.4 or is vomiting, or has diarrhea, he or she will need to go home and be symptom free for 24 hours off of medication. We ask that parents/guardians pick up their children promptly when called.
  • As temperatures drop, we ask all students to dress appropriately for winter weather. 

Thank you

Dear Parents and Families,

Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here’s what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:

  • Set the example. Let children see you read.
  • Have a collection of books in your home. Update this collection routinely to keep up with changing tastes and reading skills.
  • Support our school’s Book Fair. Allow your children to choose their own books to read.

Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings the books kids want to read right into our school. It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits.
