STUDENT ILLNESS

Colds, flu, fever and other contagious diseases are a serious issue in a school environment because they can spread so rapidly.  Parents, please keep your child home if they have a fever or are showing symptoms of an illness.  A child needs to be fever, diarrhea and vomit free for 24 hours before they can return to school.  Also, if they have tested positive for strep, they need to be on antibiotics for a full 24 hours before they can return.  Thank you for adhering to our policy

IMPORTANT CAR RIDER INFORMATION:

If you plan on picking your child up after school, please send a note in with your child so their teacher and office staff are aware.  The car rider placard's purpose is to help our staff identify which car the child is to get into - we still need to receive communication from you that your child will be picked up.  If you are picking your child up on a permanent basis, we will accept a note covering the entire school year or a specific time period.

 


REMINDER TO PARENTS AND VISITORS:

Per Board policy, photos of students within the classroom are not to be taken without the permission of the teacher.  In addition to this policy, we request that photos not be published on any social media website.

Absences for students in the Primary Building can be reported by calling 330-722-8257 ext. 9203.  If your child is sick or has an appointment, we ask that you call to report this by 9:30 AM.
