Handbook Forms

Parent- Student handbooks were sent out this past September.  In the back of each handbook, on page A-1, is a Parent Student Handbook Agreement Form.  After reading your copy of the handbook, please sign this form and return to Stephanie Foerster in the front office.  Thank you to those who have already signed their form.


Flu Season is Coming

Flu season brings sniffles, aches and fevers. To prevent children from sharing with their friends, we kindly ask that they stay home if they have a fever of 100 degrees or higher or any other symptoms of the flu. According to school policy, children should be fever free without medicine for 24 hours before they come back to school. Let’s keep everyone healthy and happy this flu season.
