Illness & Medicine


For the health and wellness of our teachers, staff, and students please keep your child home if they are ill.  Please refer to the Attendance link on how to report your child's absence.

If your child has an illness that prevents them from participating comfortably in school activities, or the illness results in greater care needs, please keep your child at home.
