    ​The Book Swap will begin on Monday, May 15th.  Students can bring in a book they are no longer reading from home and trade it for another book at the swap. Please note that if a student has several books that they would like to donate for the swap, we will gladly accept them.  But know that the students will only be able to swap for one book.  All left over books will be donated to a local organization and classroom libraries.  Thanks so much for your continued support for children's literacy.

    Clinic News​

    Hand washing plays an important role in preventing the spread of germs.  Here are some basic principles of hand hygiene awareness recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

    • ​Wash your hands when they are dirty and before eating.  Use soap and warm water for 20 seconds or alcohol based cleaner.
    • Do not cough or sneeze into your hands.  Use a tissue or cough and sneeze into your upper arm.
    • Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth with dirty hands.
    • Remember, there is no substitute for good hand washing.​

    ​​​Head Lice:  Make sure to always check your child for head lice during routine grooming.  As with any contagious condition, prevention is key.  There is no outbreak of lice at this time but we encourage you to be proactive.  Keep your child's hair pulled back if it's long; discourage sharing of brushes, combs, and head gear.  

    The signs of head lice are scratching at the back of the neck and behind the ears.  It appears like a dandruff flake but glued near the base of the hair shaft.  There are many over the counter treatments.  Check with your child's doctor for what they recommend or you may pick up the flyer from your school,  "Guide for Head Lice Treatment".

    If your child has head lice, please notify the school nurse.  If your child is found to have live bugs during school hours, you will be asked to come pick your child up for early dismissal.  Please have updated phone numbers on the emergency card at school.  Should you have any questions, please contact the clinic, or go to the School Health page on the school website for more information.
