Flu Season  
 This year the flu season is severe. Please do not mask the symptom of a fever with fever reducing medication. If your child has a fever, per policy, you must keep him/her from school. Should your child develop a fever greater than 100.4 while at school, he/she must be picked up promptly from school. Upon returning to school, a note from the doctor's office must be submitted to the school office. Thank you for assisting us with this serious matter.
