    Message from the Nurse

    Lots of germs are going around the school. The most important thing you can do for yourself and everyone else is to wash your hands! Soap and water is the best, but hand sanitizer is also a good choice. Avoid touching your face and eyes. Getting 8-9 hours of sleep a night is also important for your physical and mental health. Stay Healthy!
