Visit the Nurse
If your child is not feeling well it is best to have him/her seen by your health care provider.
If your child has a fever please keep him/her home from school. No child should return to school until they are fever free for at least 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medeication.
You can always assume that we have many illnesses here at school (especially strep throat, Chicken Pox, Fifth's Disease, conjunctivitis and lice)
Please be aware that Putnam County has identified pertussis (whooping cough) in our school community. Pertussis is a highly contagious disease that is spread through the air by coughing or sneezing. Please have your child's persistant cough checked by their health care provider.
The nurse is available for emergency health problems and first aid during the school day.

Scoliosis Screening is mandated for those students in grade 5 who have not been checked by their private physician.
