Following these guidelines will not only be beneficial to your child’s recovery, but will help prevent the spread of illness to other students and staff.

If your child requires an antibiotic for an infection, they must be on the medication for a 24-hour prior to returning - (please refer to the medication policy in the school handbook or call the nurse).

Injuries that occur outside of school are the responsibility of the parent. Because of the number of students we service here at school, please do not send them to school to be checked. 

Thank you for your cooperation. I look forward to working with your child this year and wish you a healthy school year.
