Important Things to Know
Please do not send your child to school if he/she is ill, including recent vomiting, diarrhea, or fever of 100 degrees or more. They must be symptom-free for at least 24 hours before they can return to school, and without the need for medication to keep their temperature down.
No medications can be administered without a healthcare provider's order, including Tylenol and Ibuprofen. Cough drops from home should be given to their teacher upon arrival to the classroom. Please do not send medication in with your child for them to administer to themselves.
Due to multiple food allergies in our school, NO outside food/snacks are to be brought in for your child's classroom without special permission.
