Dear Parents and Guardians,

‘Tis the season – so I’ll start with a friendly reminder to wash your hands. And please help your child do the same!

The DOE recommends “Stay Home When Sick” or the day after if your child has shown signs of feeling ill the evening before school or if they have a fever. Rest can help you and your child get better sooner, and it helps prevent the spread of germs.

We hope everyone is feeling healthy as we look to the full week ahead.

Let’s see what next week has in store…
