Reminder:  If students have a fever, are vomiting, or dealing with other forms of illness, please stay home from school until you are free of symptoms for 24 hours without the use of medication.  The amount of students attempting to make it in for part of the day, or leaving midway through the day, only opens up the potential spread of illness within the school.
Thank you for your attention this policy – Dean of Student Life
