​ ​Urgent Information!


When is your child too 

sick for school?                  

There are many infectious diseases that require a child to remain home, however, the flu season is upon us and we are seeing the spread of illness in our school. Please do your part in protecting our staff, students, and community by keeping your child home when they are not feeling well. Their absence will be excused and missed assignments can be completed and turned in later.

Keep your child home if he/she has:

  • A fever: A temperature of 100.4 along with behavior changes or other signs and symptoms such as a sore throat, rash, vomiting, diarrhea, earache, irritability or malaise. Keep home until all symptoms are gone and he/she has no fever (less than 100°F without using fever-reducing medicine) for at least 24 hours.

  • Vomiting: Two or more times within a 24-hour period

  • Diarrhea

Health Promotion Tips/Disease Prevention:

  • Wash hands: Hand washing is the single most important method of preventing the spread of disease according to public health agencies.

  • Cover coughs and sneezes: Cover coughs and sneezes and wash hands if facial tissue (i.e. Kleenex) was used:

  • Vaccinations: Consider getting a flu vaccination! The numbers don’t lie. There is a steady increase in 2019-2020 flu-related urgent care and emergency department visits. The single best way to prevent the flu is to get a flu vaccine.

Please contact our school nurse Rhonda with any questions at (253) 571-6943.

How we're doing

To measure progress toward meeting the School Board’s strategic goals, we use a set of benchmarks that let parents and community members track our progress. It’s like a report card for our school and the whole district.
