Dear Parents,

In the last week or so, a number of Bay Area schools have experienced significant numbers of students with the norovirus and other contagious illnesses. The stories have been covered by all major media outlets in the last few days. Although there are no epidemics at this time that have been reported to our school districts, it makes sense to use this teachable moment and remind our students about the proper steps of handwashing.

Pictures of the steps of handwashing are being posted in each of our restrooms. Teachers are also reinforcing with students the importance of washing their hands properly, regularly, and thoroughly.

Please help us by using the same steps at home, which will be one more way we can keep our students healthy and in school!
