Healthy students are better learners. That’s why we are here to help support your child’s health and wellness. Please contact our health services staff (see below) to let us know of any health concerns or medical conditions that your child may have. Remember, if your child is sick, please keep them home. See our When To Stay Home guidelines below.

Please call the school attendance line each day your child is absent due to illness.
