Lost & Found

Reminder:  Please do place both your child’s name and grade level on their belongings.  There are more than several items needing to find their owners. If your student has anything lost, please do contact Mrs. Williams.

From the School Nurse

Please be reminded that children should stay home for 24 hours after they have vomited, had diarrhea or fever of 37.7°C/100°F or greater.  This not only helps your child get well but also helps to keep disease from spreading in the classroom.  Thank you for your cooperation!
