  • Please do NOT send your child to school if they have any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, congestion/runny nose, vomiting, diarrhea, sore throat, headache, fatigue, muscle or body aches, difficulty breathing, or loss of taste/smell.  Check your child carefully each morning.  If a child is found with any of these symptoms while at school, they may be sent home.  It is best to keep your child home if you are unsure.
