THE PRINCIPAL'S OFFICE
Principal Justin Raymond Many thanks to all our Wolf pack families for their flexibility in getting our inaugural   year at Jordan Springs off to a strong start! I look forward to partnering with you to   help our students thrive. I appreciate everyone working together to keep our   students safe and healthy.
NOTE FROM THE NURSE
school nurseWith the arrival of colder weather, we have now entered the cold and flu season along with Covid 19. Now is the time for your annual flu vaccine. For the health of your child, other students, and staff, it is important to know when your child should stay at home due to illness. Students should stay home if they have any of the following symptoms:


- Fever of 100 or higher in the past 24 hours
- Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea within the past 24 hours
- Sore throat with fever
- Bad cough or difficulty breathing
- Runny nose if the discharge is yellow or green
- Headache or stomach ache in combination with other symptoms (i.e., cough or sore throat)
- Undiagnosed rash that is accompanied by fever or itching
- Pinkeye (conjunctivitis) in one or both eyes
- If your child has strep throat or another bacterial infection, he/she should stay home until the antibiotic has been given 24 hours and the health care provider has given permission to return to school.

ATTENDANCE

Each day, Monday through Friday, is an instructional day,   regardless of whether students are in the Hybrid or Distance model,   except for school holidays. Students will be counted as present if they   fulfill the requirements for meaningful interaction. Meaningful interaction is   considered a two-way engagement between a student and staff that   allows feedback or input from the student on successes and challenges. In   grades kindergarten through fifth grade there should be meaningful   interaction with one or more staff members on a daily basis.
