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.
