Do NOT Take Complaints of Sore Throats Lightly~

I cannot stress enough to parents the need to listen to their children's complaints of suspected illness's.

We are currently seeing more and more students in the elementary levels being treated for Strep Throat (and Scarlet Fever). If your child is complaining of a sore throat, upset stomach, headache, etc. please call your family doctor and have them evaluated. Not always will you see a rise in temperature so I ask that you do not presume no fever means all is well.

I ask that you continually stress the need for good hand washing techniques with your children as it remains the #1 preventative in decreasing the spread of ALL viruses/illness's.

Thank you and enjoy your Spring Break!
