There seems to be a bug going around in our younger grades. Please remember, when students are sick – fever, vomiting, diarrhea, etc. – they need to be out of school for at least 24 hours after they are symptom-free. This helps to ensure that they do not spread their illness to other students and staff members.

Executive Functioning and Physical Activity Messages
How are you doing at becoming a better boss of yourself? Good bosses check-in with the people around them to make sure they are doing a good job. Today, ask yourself: Am I using tools to manage my zones? Do I know how to get back in the Green Zone? Do I know how to STOP and Read the Room? This week, ask your teacher and one friend these questions about yourself.
Physical Activity and Sports
Being physically active in a group can help you make friends, so the next time you plan to be physically active, ask if anyone wants to join you! And, always be a team player!
