School Illness

Given the level of illness at school now, including the stomach flu and other viruses, if your student is not feeling well, please keep them at home.  School policy requires that a student be fever-free for 24 hours before returning to school.  Students with a fever of 99.4 or greater may be sent home at the direction of the school nurse, Mrs. Coble.  Thank you for your consideration in this matter.

Student Absences
When your student is absent from school, please send a note detailing the reason for their absence so that I may correctly mark attendance each day.

"Sign and Return" on Student Assessments
To ensure that parents are seeing their student's grades on assessments, in 4th and 5th grade we ask parents to please sign and return all assessments (they will be stamped for your signature) in the student's green Friday folder when they return to school on Monday morning.  These will be returned to the student at the end of the 9 weeks.  Thank you for your help with this!
