Please notify the health office of all student absences by 9:30 am.  All contagious diseases must be reported to the health office immediately (strep, chickenpox, lice, pinkeye, etc.).  Please feel free to call me with any questions or health concerns. We continue to teach and reinforce good health habits for our children to practice, such as, frequent hand washing, eating a well balanced diet, plenty of exercise and rest at night.  This will help keep our school community healthy and happy.  Have a great year!
 
 
FOOD ALLERGIES - There are many students in our school with life threatening food allergies. The most common are peanuts/nuts/milk & eggs. It is important that your child be as safe as possible during the school day.  Please be mindful of these allergies when sending in birthday snacks. All snacks should be peanut free.  We do not allow any baked goods.  This includes home baked goods, as well as bakery goods. Please also remember, foods cannot be shared, so please reinforce this with your child/children. If your child does have an allergy of any kind, please notify the health office and teacher as soon as possible. Kindly send in a special snack bag for the teacher to keep in the classroom so that the teacher can offer a safe snack to your child in the event of a birthday celebration.
