Toys At School
Toys At School
Students and Parents,
This is a reminder that toys are not allowed at school.  This includes spinners, fidget boxes, slime, etc.  These items are causing a huge distraction in the classroom environment.  If students bring a toy to school, the toy will be brought to the office and students will be able to pick it up at the end of the day.  The second time a toy is brought to school, parents will need to pick it up from the office before or after school.  Thank you in advance for your help with this matter.
 If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Ms. Catanese.

Norovirus Prevention Tips
A Norovirus strain is expected to hit hard this year.  Following is information from our school nurse to help prevent the spread of the Norovirus  The "stomach bug" (an example;  the norovirus) can cause severe onset of vomiting, diarrhea episodes, dehydration & stomach pain/cramping.  The Center for Disease Control recommends:
  • WASH HANDS for 20 seconds, especially before preparing foods & after toileting
  • CLEAN SURFACES - Use bleach-based cleaner or other disinfectant
  • WASH LAUNDRY - Remove & wash soiled linens and clothes immediately
  • USE GLOVES to pick up soiled materials or when wiping down counters
  • STAY HOME WHEN SICK and stay home 2 days more after symptoms of nausea, vomiting, stomach pain stop.
  • Avoid contact directly with others, as the Norovirus can be spread long after symptoms are gone, up to two weeks.
