Since everyone 5 years old and older are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, we encourage all eligible students to get fully vaccinated including booster shots. Students should wear a properly fitted mask indoors and in public if they are in an area of high transmission.
To prevent the spread of illnesses in the school, keep your child home if experiencing Covid-19, flu or cold symptoms and check your child’s temperature, observe your child at home for 1-2 hours before deciding to attend school.
KEEP YOUR CHILD HOME, DO NOT SEND THEM TO SCHOOL if he or she has symptoms (but not limited to): fever, cough, congestion, runny nose, sore throat, headache, body aches, fatigue, nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, loss of taste/smell, unknown skin rash.
