Dear Parent,

If your child has a temperature or is sent home from school with a temperature, he/she must be clear of fever for
24 hours without taking any fever reducing medication before returning to school. This not only protects your child but the children in their class.

Please click this link for the upcoming school year immunization requirements.  Please click this link to obtain an exemption form.
