Our school health offices have been experiencing an inordinate number of sick students. This is not because of any particular virus or ailment present. Rather, we believe it is because students are coming to school sick. We ask parents to please not send your students to school if they are ill. Not only are they better off recovering at home, but it eliminates the exposure to other students and staff and the likelihood of more illnesses and absences.
