    It is that time of year where we are seeing more cases of strep throat. It can take 2-5 days for your child to display symptoms of strep throat after they are exposed to the bacteria. Please carefully assess your child before sending them to school. It is recommended that students carry water and "non-menthol" throat lozenges for sore throats and coughs. Students may only carry throat lozenges/cough drops if symptomatic and must be sitting at their desk while a lozenge/drop is in their mouth. Please keep your child home from school if they are not well enough to complete a full day at school to avoid transmitting illness and to allow your child to get extra rest. Frequent hand washing is essential. Please see a Dr. promptly for any concerns. Students must be on antibiotics for at least 24 hours (and feeling well enough) if diagnosed with strep throat before returning to school. Click here for information regarding strep throat

    In an effort to continue to move forward with our transition to a paperless district, you will need to log into your parent portal on Infinite Campus to fill out your emergency information. Please log in and update all emergency information including phone numbers, addresses and medical/condition information. Your cooperation is appreciated.

    Reminder to students that will be in 6th grade for the 2017/2018 school year- if your child is 11 years old by July 24, 2017, they will need proof of a Tdap and Meningococcal immunization in order to attend school. Sixth-grade students that are 10 years old will need proof of the immmunizations within 10 days after turning 11 years old. (Please note that the Meningococcal vaccine formula can not be administered until your child is 11 years old). Click here for the immunization policy
     
    Head lice in school-aged children is a continuous concern. One must assume that lice are always present in the community and school. It is recommended that parents screen their child for head lice on a weekly basis in a well-lit room. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has a great website with illustrations and information to help assist in identifying lice.
