Our health partners continue to emphasize the following actions to prevent the spread of this virus and any other illness:
      1. Wash your hands often with soap and water; cover your cough and sneeze; and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
      2. If you or your child are sick, stay home from school and activities. 
      3. Do not return to school or work until you are feeling better and a fever has been gone for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication. 

Please know that the health and safety of our students is our top priority, and we will continue to keep you informed as the situation progresses.
