EARLY CHECK OUT

Please try to schedule appointments after school hours.  Students arriving late to class or leaving class early disrupt the classroom.  If your student must leave campus early, please let the teacher know in the morning so they can have your student sent up to the office on time.  Please do not call the office to have your student dismissed, we will call when you arrive.

REMINDERS...

All visitors to our campus must check in through the Administration Office at the front of the school.


WHEN SHOULD MY CHILD STAY HOME FROM SCHOOL?

Please take a few minutes at home to carefully check your child’s health before he/she leaves for school each morning. The following are a few suggestions, which may help to guide you:

REASONS TO KEEP YOUR CHILD AT HOME!

~Illness during the night
~Fever is present (100 degrees or greater)
~Complaints of nausea, upset stomach, vomiting, headache, diarrhea prior to leaving for school
~Development of a rash on face and/or body
~Has a severe cold, cough and/or sore throat
~Has inflamed eye(s) with discharge from them

Please Remember: An ill child cannot function properly in the classroom. The spread of illness and disease through class or school can be more easily monitored if sick children remain at home during the acute stage of an illness. If the school health tech detects any of the above, your child will be sent home.

People with influenza-like illness are to remain home until at least 24 hours after they are free of fever (100o F [37.8o C]) without the use of fever-reducing medications.

A student’s absence should be reported on the School Absence Hotline by calling: (858) 674-6300 press #2.

Good evening Grizzly Families. This is Mrs. Huff with the Willow Grove Weekly update.

TAY-SACHS DISEASE FUNDRAISER
From March 23- April 3 Student Council is hosting a fundraiser for Tay-Sachs disease, a devastating disease that is close to our hearts. One of our beloved students at Willow Grove, Gavin Marquez, suffered from Tay-Sachs. Our goal is to raise awareness and help fund a cure for this disease. Please see the link included to learn more about what you can do to help. Teachers will have collection envelopes in classrooms beginning March 23rd if you'd like to make a monetary donation for the Cure Tay-Sachs Foundation. All donations will be collected on April 3rd and delivered directly to the Cure Tay-Sachs Foundation. Thanks for helping make a difference!
