    Dear Parent/Guardian:

    If your child is absent, please call the attendance office-285-8910. A sick child cannot perform well and will likely spread the illness to other children/staff. Please make a plan for childcare ahead of time. The health office assists students who are not feeling well or need special treatment as per a doctor's order. Our nurses are always helpful and attentive as they tend to all health-related needs. Nurses are not permitted to make a diagnosis which must be made by your child’s physician.
