Important Flu Information

Flu Flyer

Flu is widespread over 46 states, and the H3N2 is a very bad strain. Many are sicker for longer periods of time. Be sure to encourage frequent hand-washing, wiping surfaces (especially doorknobs) and covering coughs/sneezes with elbows. Attached is the letter we sent home with students today, "Too Sick for School."

We are now using CareDox!

CareDox Flyer

Dear parents and guardians:
We are excited to announce that District is now using CareDox, a new tool for
our health staff to take the best care of our students, and get them back to the
classroom as quickly as possible after a nurse visit.
