  • Fever Free for 24 Hours!

    Reminder from Nurse Hamilton: Children should be fever free without the use of fever reducers for 24 hours before returning to school after an illness. 

    There is a lot of flu and strep going around and many children seem to be returning to school prematurely. Remember, even though you can lower a fever with Tylenol or other fever reducers, that doesn't mean the student should be in school. After any fever of 100 or more, students should remain at home for 24 hours.

  • Message from PE Teacher, Carmen Asencio

    Dear Parents and Students,

    I will be leaving for the next couple of months.  I am happy to say I will be getting a new knee!  During my leave, Mr. Devito, with the help of Ms. Sora and Ms. Katie, will be taking over my classes.  The curriculum and expectations will continue to be the same.  Though, running and track at lunch will be cancelled until I return in the beginning of March.  Weekend runs will continue to take place, but I will let you know ahead of time if your child is participating.
