From the School Nurse
Sophomores parents may send in the Junior physical reports now. There is a form on the nurse's website, the doctor's form is preferred.

Keep reminding your student to wash their hands and keep their hands away from their face and mouth as this is how stomach virus infections spread. An infected person will not show signs of infection but will be capable for spreading it for about 2 days prior to getting sick.
