Nurse’S NoteS
Cold and flu season has arrived.  These viruses are sneaky and like to hide around the house.  Here are a few tips to help keep you and your family healthy.
**Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
**Cover your cough, keep used tissues isolated - discard immediately.
**Clean contact surfaces with disinfectant wipes.
**Toys, door handles, phones and light switches harbor viruses.
Who controls the TV remote in your house?  Viruses do!! 
Carry hand sanitizer with you.
Stay home if sick!

Cold Weather

During the winter months, please dress your child/children for the cold temperatures.  Unless it is raining or bitter cold, we do have outside recess. If they do not come appropriately dressed, they will be asked to wait on the bench by the office until recess time is over.

Please notify the office if:

Your child’s after school plans get changed. (please notify us by 2:30 PM)

If you are going to be out of town for an extended period of time, please remember to let us know who will be responsible for your children. We’ll need contact names and numbers.

Emergency contacts ~ Please verify who you have listed as emergency contacts. In a real life emergency, we will need to verify who is able to pick up your child/children.
