Happy President’s Day Weekend!
I am reposting the following as reminders. We really need your help with this first one regarding Cold and Flu Season, as this week we saw an INCREASE in students coming in to school sick when they met the guidelines for staying at home. Following these guidelines below, it is imperative that you keep your child home at school if they are sick, please help us with this.
Regarding the second bullet, send me your stories of kindness, as we would love to celebrate how our community shows kindness and caring towards others!
Everyone enjoy your weekend and remember- NO SCHOOL on Monday!
Jennifer Harris, Proud Principal of Cory
