Note from School Nurse, Paula Amante: Flu and cold season is quickly approaching. Here are some guidelines to help you determine when you should keep your child home:
If your child has had a fever of 100.0 or more within the last 24 hours.
If your child has had diarrhea or vomiting within the last 24 hours or is unable to eat normally.
If your child has a contagious illness, for example, strep throat or conjunctivitis and has not been taking an antibiotic for at least 24 hours.
If your child is unable to participate fully in school activities because of illness.
If your child requires medication for fever.
Remember, if you keep your child home, you must notify the school by filling out a Report Attendance Form. This can be found on the Alcott Website under the Parents tab. Please be specific with illness details when reporting your child out sick, i.e. fever, sore throat, coughs, etc. Wishing everyone good health!
Coats for Kids: Concord Middle School’s Coats for Kids Club needs the elementary schools help in collecting coats for Anton’s Cleaners annual Coats for Kids drive. In the front entrance, a box is available for all winter coats for kids, adults, and babies that are in good wearable condition. We cannot accept vests, hats, gloves, or snow pants. Please donate coats that you would give a friend to wear. Coats are being collected now through January 6th, 2019. Thank you for your donation.
