Nurse Nancy's Notes

VERY IMPORTANT REMINDER 

Please make sure that you notify the school immediately if your phone number or address changes.  Also, if another contact that is listed for your child has a phone number change (grandmother, aunt, uncle, Father, etc), please notify the school immediately.  If your child becomes ill at school we must be able to reach you or your other listed contacts. 

 Also, we are in the prime flu, fever, cold and cough season.  DO NOT send your child to school if he or she is sick.  If your child runs a fever, has diarrhea or is vomiting, they cannot return to school until symptoms are gone for 24 hours. 

Thank you for your cooperation and Happy New Year!

 --Nurse Nancy
