A note from School Nurse Laurie: Help us all stay in school and stay well.
As we see an increase in positive cases in our county and therefore in our schools we ask all Parents, Students,Teachers and Staff to remember:
PLEASE DO NOT SEND YOUR KIDS TO SCHOOL SICK! The Omicron variant is presenting in kids as any of these symptoms: (Please see attached for full list) Low grade fever, sore throat, headache, fatigue and body aches.
We do have rapid tests that can be done on our Students, Staff and Teachers, as well as immediate at risk family members as needed.
We will ask to test your student for COVID anytime your student presents to the nurses office with any symptoms that could be related to COVID. Please do not be upset with the Teachers or the Nurse, it is a condition of the contract for us to receive these tests for free that we ask this.
Testing is not mandatory.

If you are experiencing any COVID symptoms we ask that you stay home and self-quarantine. Please contact the school to let us know so that we may work with you on staying up on your studies.
