Flu Season
We are in the midst of a flu season. To stay healthy this flu season:

  • Get vaccinated against the flu, its not too late
  • Wash your hands often
  • Avoid touching your eyes and face
  • Do not share personal items such as drinking cups
  • Cover your cough or sneeze
  • Do fist bump instead of shaking handssneeze-512

If you are sick with flu like symptoms, stay home and away from others (except to go to the doctor) until 24 hours after your fever is gone. Please remember to notify the office before 8:30 a.m. if your child is not coming to school.
