Helpful Information for parents

Please update your emergency card throughout the school year. Often parents will have changes in work numbers, cell phone numbers, emergency contacts, etc. Valuable time is freguently spent by school nurses or office staff trying to locate a parent for a sick or injured child.
Encourage your child to eat a nutritious breakfast and lunch as this prevents many stomachaches, headaches, poor concentration, and fatique.
Encourage your child to get adequate rest.
Teach your child to wash their hands frequently - before and after meals, after using the bathroom, etc.
