Important Message to Students and Parents from Our Nurses:

If your student has any of the following symptoms, please keep them at home: Fever, headache, sore throat, cough, congestion, body aches, generalized fatigue, loss of taste/smell, nausea or vomiting.

If your child comes to school with any of these symptoms they will need to be picked up from school immediately. If their symptoms continue please call their doctor for medical advice.

If anyone in your household has a confirmed positive COVID test, please keep your child at home. Please call or email our nurses and they can help advise you regarding their absences from school.

Do not send your child into school for the purpose of getting tested for COVID. We need your child to stay at home when sick to keep our school community safe and healthy!
