Parents, Sick season is definitely upon us. We have seen strep, RSV, COVID, and other illnesses traveling through our schools. As a reminder: If your student has a fever, they must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school. If your child has diarrhea or vomits, they cannot return to school for 24 hours after their last episode. If your child is coughing uncontrollably, if their eyes are red, itchy, painful, crusty, or if they complain of a sore throat or ear pain, please keep them home and have them seen by a provider. These issues inhibit their ability to focus in the classroom. One final thing: COVID is on the rise again and our county is seeing extremely high numbers of COVID positive cases. As to keep our numbers down, if you suspect your child has COVID, please keep them home and test them. If you need a test, we have several available at the schools. Hopefully we can be PROactive this season and avoid any mandates!

Starting next week we are not going to be able to offer salads due to supply chain and growing season issues. We ordered salad mix for today's trucks and it was out of stock. The floods, hurricanes and the end of the growing season has not helped matters any. The winter growing season in the Yuma valley has begun so hopefully sometime after Thanksgiving we will be able to offer salads again. Thanks!
