- Vomitting in the last 24 hours

- Diarrhea more than two times in the last 24 hours

- Rash.  All rashes should be diagnosed by a doctor

- Open sores, unless the area can be covered securely with a bandage or dressing.

- Any contagious disease

Thank you for your help in keeping all of our students and staff healthy and safe.

If you are over the age of 18, or will be turning 18 soon, make sure you register to vote. Voting is the cornerstone of a democracy but sadly far too few people vote.  Voting is a civil right that citizens of many other countries wish they had. If you have ever wondered why you should vote, here are a few good reasons:

Vote because every election matters. Vote because the choices you will make matter. Vote because elections aren't simply about your representatives in Washington or who is president. ... When voters don't turn out to choose their local and state governments, they may receive a government that doesn't represent them.

Make a difference - Vote!
