From the School Nurse...Now is the time of year that illness becomes more active.  I would like to remind all parents and students of our School Health Policy regarding fever and/or vomiting.  The policy states that the child is not to return to school until they are fever free and/or not vomiting for a 24 hour period.  Their temperature should be normal without the aid of Tylenol or Motrin for that 24 hour period.
  Want another way to show your school spirit?  You're in luck...the PTO is selling Eagle flags and lunch totes this fall.  Lunch totes are $10 each.  Flags are $15 each, and would look great at your home or business!  Flags can be purchased at home volleyball and football games, in person with Brenda Codner at the High School, or by returning the attached order form to either of the school offices. Click here to view the order form and a sample of the designs.
