Dear Parents and Guardians,

We are reminding children to wash their hands frequently and use hand sanitizer when a sink isn’t available. We have had a few extra high fevers recently and while specific classrooms may be reaching out we want to remind everyone to pay attention to take care of ourselves. In general, during this busy time of year, remember to get enough rest and drink plenty of water. Please send a labeled water bottle with your child every day. Remember – stay healthy, everyone!
