Welcome Letter from the School Nurse

We have teamed up with Bridging Brighter Smiles to provide students with oral hygiene service right at school! Enrollment is open to all students in the District.  Bridging Brighter Smiles program provides: Oral Screenings, Cleanings, Fluoride Varnish (decay prevention), and Dental Sealants (cavity prevention).

Help protect your children -- and their classmates -- when they're under the weather, so that they can return to the classroom healthy and ready to learn.


When your child is sick

The best thing you can do is to keep your children home when sick. This will help stop the spread of illness to other children and teachers. Keep them home when they show any of these symptoms:

  • fever of 100 degrees F or higher

  • nausea or vomiting

  • severe headache

  • diarrhea

  • red, watery eyes with yellow or green drainage

  • undiagnosed rash

Children should stay home until they have been naturally without fever for at least 24 hours. Please do not give children fever-reducing medication and then send them to school.
