From the Nurse

As many of you have probably seen on the news, there have been increasing numbers of active cases of measles in children being reported in the US this winter. I would just like to take this opportunity to remind parents the importance of immunizations and to contact your child’s doctor if your child is due for any immunizations. For those who may travel over school vacations, this is of particular concern, as airports merge many populations and are considered high risk when talking about the spread of germs. Also, when your child does see his/her doctor, please remember to bring in a copy of the physical so we can keep your child’s health record up to date. Furthermore, we are currently asking parents of grade 3 students to schedule and send in a current physical, as it will be required for grade 4 entry.

Thank you for your efforts in helping our school population stay healthy! J

THANK-YOU!

Mrs. DeNapoli, School Nurse

Attendance:
As many of you know, we are having some trouble with our phones.  As a result, I believe we have not received information about some students who have been absent for illness.  Therefore, these students have unexcused absences instead of excused absences (see the calendar handbook p10-11 for the difference).  I will be sending out attendance letters to families with children in excess of 5 unexcused absences next week.  If you have not given us notification of an illness that kept your child home this year, please do so on Monday.  You may do this by emailing our school nurse, Mrs. Denapoli, at:
