Flu Information

As of January 27, 10% of US death certificates listed FLU or pnuemonia as cause of death.

Flu is expected to last till May.   

CDC estimates 700,000 people or more will be hospitalized due to flu.

There are 84 kids that died of flu this flu season..  22 just died at an alarming rate between February 4-10, 2018.  


On the good side, flu is still PREVENTABLE:


          1..  Get vaccinated.  It is not too late!  The flu vaccine lessens severity and shortens days of flu symptoms.             


          2.   When sick, stay home from work or school.  Stay away from public places.


          3.   Keep washing hands frequently since flu virus lives 24 hours on surfaces like phone, door knobs, tables, etc.


          4.   Improve your immune system by having enough rest and sleep. Drink lots of water and take multi vitamins and vitamin C. 


 WARNING.:  Flu is in the air we breathe.  We know coughing and sneezing can spread the disease due to airborne transmission. Now CDC is saying that mere breathing, an exhalation from a sick person can get you sick with the flu.

New Immunization Law

No Shots?  No Records? No School.

If your child is unimmunized due to religious, personal, or medical reasons, please contact the Health Office. Starting January 1, 2016, exemptions based on personal beliefs, including religious beliefs, are no longer allowed. Children will not be enrolled unless an immunization record is presented and immunizations are up-to-date.* Please refer to for more information on the new law. 

Food Allergy Information

Food Allergy in the Classroom


Dear Parents/Guardian,


This year we welcome several students to our classrooms with severe food allergies to peanuts and tree nuts.  The student’s reactions may range from mild to life threatening.  There are several practices that will be in place to help prevent the student’s exposure to the food allergen. We invite your help and cooperation to help the students stay safe.

  1.  All students will be encouraged to wash their hands before arriving to the classroom and again  

before and after lunch.


  1. All classrooms will be designated as (peanut /tree nut) allergy aware spaces.  There will be no

classroom projects with peanut butter or peanut shells.  Please do not send any of these

projects into the classroom with your child.


  1. Parents who will send a lunch from home for their child are free to pack the foods of their

choice.  It is our hope that families CHOOSE not to send foods containing peanut butter or nuts. 

Please remind your child not to share his snack or lunch with other students.


  1. There will be special days and occasions that students may want to bring a snack to share. 

Please notify your child’s teacher, prior to bringing any food or snacks to share with the class. We encourage all parents to celebrate with non-food items such as stickers or pencils rather than food.


Our school is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all of our students. We look forward to working together with you to have a wonderful and safe school year. 

Thank you for your understanding and support.


All prescription and over the counter medication require a physician authorization form signed by the parent and the physician PRIOR to the student beginning his or her medication at school. A new form must be signed and turned in each school year, one form per medication. All  medications must be in the original container and labeled with the students name. Students are not allowed to carry ANY medication with the exception of an inhaler or an epi-pen with the proper physician's form. Any prescribed medication needs to be dispensed from the health office. For your convenience, you may download and print the Physicians Medication Authorization form.

Flu Keeping Student Healthy

Keeping your child at home

Dear Parents/Guardians,

“Healthy students learn better.” Although it is important for students to be at school every day the health staff would like to review the general guidelines for students coming to school. Please take a moment to read the following protocols.
Students should not be sent to school with the symptoms listed below:

• Fever (100 or above)
• Diarrhea
• Nausea with or without vomiting
• Pain that is not controlled
• Flu symptoms
• Infectious Conjunctivitis (pink eye), this requires a physician’s visit


Students may return to school:

• Fever free for 24 hours
• No vomiting for the last 24 hours
• Infectious Conjunctivitis (pink eye) when antibiotic treatment has been at least 24 hours and symptoms have subsided

Students with injuries requiring the usage of wheelchairs, crutches, splints, braces or casts require a physician’s note and indication when they are able to resume regular activities. These students will be restricted from contact sports and other designated activities on the playground.

Due to unexpected illnesses and emergencies, current work, home and cell phone numbers are important to our school. Please take the time to update any changes in your personal phone numbers and emergency contact numbers.

Thank you for helping keep our school healthy and safe.
