School Board/Budget Meetings have been scheduled for April 16th and 30th, 5:30 pm at the HS cafeteria.
Second Grade Parent Meeting
will be held April 30th at 4:30 in the ES Library to discuss progress this year.

Notices are being sent home today with students who owe overdue books.  Please look for them.  Starting in May, we are enacting a "forgiveness" program.  Instead of paying for lost  books, students may report to the library during recess and read to our "Adopted Grandparent".  Please see or speak with Emily Wendell, our librarian, to make arrangements. 

This year's snow days will be made up at the end of the school year.  The current seniors will be having a special schedule to keep their schedule graduation date.  Thank you Mr. Lincoln for help with this situation.

Please note afternoon dismissal procedures:
For your child's safety, it is important that parents remember to wait in the library for students to be escorted to the library to be signed out. Please do not pull your child from the classroom lines.  We need to be patient and organized in making sure all students are safe at the end of the day.  Thank you.

January 2015

Dear parents/guardians:

There have been confirmed cases of influenza within the community, so I would like to take a moment to review the signs and symptoms, as well as the school’s policy with regard to returning to school after an illness.

Influenza is a contagious virus; school-aged children and those with respiratory conditions, such as asthma, tend to have a high rate of influenza.  Common signs and symptoms may include: fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills, fatigue and occasionally diarrhea and/or vomiting.  Other symptoms that should be evaluated by a doctor may include: breathing issues, bluish colored skin, not eating or drinking, not waking up, extreme irritability and fever with rash.  As always, if you have concerns or questions, please have your child seen by their doctor.

The following guidelines are used in determining when to send a student home; these same guidelines should be used when deciding whether or not to send your child to school.  If a child has a fever of 100 degrees or more, is vomiting, or is suspected to be contagious, we will ask that you pick them up.  If your child is home with a fever, vomiting or diarrhea, they should remain home for a full 24 hours after their fever is gone, or the last bout of vomiting or diarrhea.  We ask that parents and visitors to our school use these same guidelines.

Hand washing remains one of the best ways to prevent the spread of influenza and other illnesses.  Everyone should wash their hands whenever they look or feel dirty, after coughing, sneezing and blowing their nose, before eating and after using the bathroom.  Hand sanitizer is readily available throughout the school.  Covering one’s cough and proper disposal of tissues are other ways to decrease the spread of germs.  Frequently used surfaces, such as doorknobs and faucet handles, should be routinely disinfected.

For more information, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website at http://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/disease/index.htm or http://www.cdc.gov/flu/parents/.

Thank you for you help in making the start of 2015 not only happy, but healthy!
