Stay Home When Sick:  We have seen a high number of students visiting the health office within the first hour of school. As a reminder, a child should be kept home when the child’s illness causes one or more of the following: 

·         Elevated temperature (fever defined as >100 degrees will be sent home and can return after fever free for 24 hours without the use of medication)

·         Vomiting and/or diarrhea (can return after 24 hours with no vomiting/diarrhea)

·         Child feels unwell: cough, low grade temp, headache, sore throat, allergies that causes disruption and/or prevents the child from participating comfortably in learning. 

·         An acute change in behavior: lethargy, irritability, persistent crying, difficulty breathing, or new rash. 

When in doubt please contact your personal health care provider. We appreciate you working with us to promote the health and safety of our PV community.

Picture Day Date Changed: School photos will now take place on Friday, September 17th at Forest Grove Elementary. This is a change in schedule from September 9, and is due to photographer availability. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please keep an eye out for more information and ordering information to come home with your child.
