Normally, children who are too ill to go outside for recess are to ill to be at school. This is particularly true in the case of severe colds; children coming to school with severe colds are unable to function well, provide a source of infection for other children, and would probably recuperate faster at home. We do not have an adequate place to care for sick children for the day as we have only one cot. It is very uncomfortable for sick children to have to sit in the office for long periods of time until a parent or other contact person can come to collect them. Parents are asked to notify the school (by phone 250-870-5132) of their son/daughter's absence before 8:30 am on the days in question -- Pleae state the teacher and child's name. You may leave a message on the answering machine.
Parents please ensure that the office is made aware of any changes in your phone numbers, contact numbers, or address.
