Staff Parking Lot
Parents are asked to park on the street when they come to school for any reason. The staff parking lots at either end of the school are for employees of the school district only. There are not enough spaces for all the employees so when parents use the spaces it causes a problem. Please respect the needs of the staff and do not park or use the parking lots for student drop off or pick up.

When Your Child Should Stay Home
Your child is too ill to go to school if he or she has any of these signs.
- Seems VERY tired and needs bed rest (this is common with flu symptoms)
- Has vomiting or diarrhea
- Has a cough that disrupts normal activity
- Has a temperature of 100 or above
- Has pain from earache, headache, sore throat or recent injury
- Has yellow or green drainage from eye(s)
- Breaks out in a rash
Fever: Your child should not go to school if his or her temperature is above 100F. When your child has been free of fever for 24 hours (without fever-reducing medicine such as Tylenol), is feeling better, and has no other symptoms, he or she may return to school.
Contagious Disease: Your child should stay home from school if he or she has a contagious disease to keep it from spreading to others. A contagious disease is one that can be spread by close contact with a person or object. Examples are: chicken pox, the flue with vomiting or diarrhea, colds, "runny nose", strep throat, lice and scabies, impetigo and "pinkeye". A disease is most often contagious 24 hours before the child shows signs of illness. It is very hard to prevent the spread of some germs, especially in the classroom. Good hand washing will help prevent the spread of germs. If an antibiotic medicine is prescribed for your child, be sure he or she has taken the medicine for at least 24 hours before returning to school. Ask your doctor when you are not sure about keeping your child home.
