Please do yourself and your peers a favor and keep sick kids home.  We have experienced a high volume of kids going home that should not have been here at all this week.  Those are kids that tell their parent that they don't feel well in the morning and then come straight to the health room and go home ill OR wait it out and try with a fever, that we don't know about until they show more signs of illness, then go home after sharing it in class all day....etc. 

If your child doesn't feel good, its really hard to learn and puts others at risk.  The best way to treat them is to take their temp AT HOME, assess for other symptoms and whether or not those symptoms will impact learning.  I have the WHEN to KEEP YOUR CHILD HOME CHECKLIST on my website.  Please use this to guide your decisions.

And please feel free to call me if you have any question as to whether your child should come to school.
