Student Illness:  Thank you for not sending your child to school if he or she is sick. Please remember to call the office (not text or email) and provide 2 symptoms your child is experiencing when ill. We report daily to the Scott County Health Department. Please let the office know if your child has a communicable disease confirmed by a doctor. If your child tests positive for Covid please refer to the PV Family Handbook. Children must be fever free and vomiting free for 24 hours prior to returning to school. You can contact your school nurse any time with questions.
