As the season
changes we will work to keep our site updated with letting you know
when colds and flu are hitting at the schools. In a contained
environment, such as the classroom, children have a tendency to move
the germs to each other, which in turn students bring them home to the
rest of the family.
It is important that when your child is sick and
has a fever that they are kept home. If your child has been diagnosed
by your family doctor with chicken pox, strep throat, scarlet fever,
measles, mumps, German measles, pink eye, whooping cough and head lice
please let the school. Many of the diseases just listed are not ones
that we see as frequently as in the past. Strep throat, chicken pox and
pink eye are ones that are usually seen during a school year. Please
visit the section on communicable diseases
on our web site to view the other diseases we would like you to notify us of.
We will be adding pages to the Health Services over time that we feel might be of interest to you and your family.
