COLD AND FLU SEASON
At this time, we have two confirmed cases of flu in the MSS community. In an effort to contain any outbreak, please keep your child at home if your student is exhibiting flu symptoms. Remember, as stated in the handbook, your child must be free of fever, vomiting or diarrhea for a full 24 hours before they can be re-admitted to class. Additionally, if your child is on antibiotics, they should be taken for a full 24 hours before returning to class.
In an effort to protect children who may be immuno-compromised, if your child is diagnosed with the flu, please call the office and let us know.
Thank you for your help in this matter!
