JUST A NOTE FROM THE NURSE
With flu and cold season just around the corner I thought I would send a friendly reminder. If your child is sick please keep them home. If your child has a fever of 100 degrees or higher they can not be in school. Your child must be below 100 degrees without tylenol or ibuprofen for 24 hours before they can return to school. If your child is vomiting please keep them home. If you have any question please feel free to call me at 540-888-4550.

If you see suspicious activity, be prepared to give a detailed report to school staff and the authorities. Pay special attention to things like: What, specifically, you observed; who you saw; when and where you saw it; and why it seemed suspicious. These details will help school staff and the authorities as they work to keep our schools and students safe.
