The weather has turned colder and this a gentle reminder to please send your student with a coat everyday to school. Students will go outside unless there in inclement weather. 

Also, along with this time of year, we start seeing more illness in our students. A student who has a fever (100.0 degrees or higher) should remain at home until they are fever free for 24 hours without taking any type of fever reducing medication. This includes, cold & cough medication that may have fever reducing medication as an ingredient. Also, students who are started on antibiotics for an infection, need to be kept home until they have taken the medication for 24 hours before returning to school.

These are recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that we are following to help prevent the spread of infections and illnesses in our school.
