Contact Information


When a child is sick they are miserable and we need to minimize the spread of germs to other students.  It is important that you have someone available to pick up your child.  Here are some things you can do to help.

  • Make sure we have your current phone numbers and phone numbers that accept incoming calls.
  • Update emergency contact information.  Sometimes we cannot reach you, so having other options is important.
  • If you are going to be unavailable, be sure someone else is on standby. 


Emergencies happen. Please help us be prepared to do everything we can for your child.

One of the best ways to prevent the spread of germs and disease is by washing your hands!  99% of disease causing germs can be eliminated by taking the time to use soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds (Try singing happy birthday twice).


Hands should be washed

·         before eating

·         after toileting

·         after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose

·         after touching an open wound

·         after playing outside or playing with pets



By the time your kids reach 5th grade, daily bathing is necessary. When a child reaches puberty and hormones start flowing, daily hygiene is a must. Their bodies are changing and their understanding of how to keep clean needs to grow right along with them. Poor hygiene can lead to rashes and infections, and supplying a soap and shampoo can help keep them clean and healthy.


Washing Hair

Hair will need to be washed more frequently.  It may need to be washed everyday or every other day due an increased oil production. Oil from hair can also aggravate acne and leave a spot on your pillow.


Deodorant and Antiperspirant

When puberty hits, sweat glands and hormones are more active.  This means that the smell from sweat is stronger and more offensive. Deodorant reduces the odor but not the sweating. Antiperspirant decreases the sweating but not the odor. A combination deodorant/antiperspirant will suppress odor and sweating. This should be used daily.



Washing the face twice a day is a good habit for your child to develop. Although some children may not have acne yet, they will have established a healthy routine.


Oral Health

Teeth should be brushed at least twice a day and flossed daily. Not only is it important to take care of your teeth (if you want them to last a lifetime), but poor oral hygiene leads to bad breath and that's something no one wants.


Changing Clothes

After puberty, a daily change of clothes is a must. When they were younger, your child might have been able to wear the same shirt or pants two days in a row, but that usually doesn't work after puberty. Clean clothes are an important part of good hygiene.

Tips for Field Day or Going to the Park!
Remember some basic tips for outside play:
  1. Make sure your student wears appropriate clothing for the day.  Layers are helpful for cool mornings and warm afternoons.
  2. Wear tennis shoes.
  3. Wear socks with your tennis shoes.
  4. Apply sunblock BEFORE coming to school. Remember the back of the neck and ears too.
  5. Eat a good breakfast and drink plenty of liquids that morning.
