    We are working very hard at school to keep everyone here healthy by washing hands and cleaning our environment.  
    If your child is diagnosed with influenza or strep throat, please let Mrs. Fischer know, so we can alert parents of his/her classmates.
    Children who have had a fever cannot return to school unless his/her body temperature is below 100 degrees F for 24 hrs without taking any fever-reducing medicine such as Advil or Tylenol.
    Children who have a gastrointestinal illness that includes vomiting/diarrhea should be free of symptoms for 24 hours before returning to school also.
    If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call or email Mrs. Fischer for guidance.
