Please continue to be proactive about communicating illness information with staff at the school. You are helping us to maintain accurate records and keep others healthy. I cannot stress enough the importance of following the recommended protocols. If your student is exposed to someone who may have COVID or someone who has tested positively for COVID, please do not send your student to school and notify the school office immediately. Please do not send your child to school if he/she does not feel well, and please notify the school office of your child’s illness. Please inform us immediately if your student or anyone in your household tests positive. If someone becomes ill during the weekend, please email me so I may have information in advance. We are relying on cooperation from each of you to help everyone to remain healthy and we thank families for being cautious in an effort to keep everyone well. 

Monitoring your child’s health: Please take your child’s temperature each morning before leaving home for school. If your child has a fever, please do not send them to school. Also, if your child has any of the following symptoms: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, a new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or a runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, please keep your child home and notify the school office.  If your child has been exposed to COVID-19, please contact our school office immediately. By sending your child to school, you are agreeing that you have completed the home screening on a daily basis. 

Have a blessed Holy Week.
Mrs. Donna Cargill
