NMMS Morning Announcements



Message(s) from the Principal 12/14/22

Good afternoon.

Due to high rates of illness among both the students and staff, we are postponing our ALICE training with students to Thursday, January 12th. Similarly, I am postponing the parent information session to Tuesday, January 10th. You can still access the training materials using the following link: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1nJ3FWm3iku6v_8pdIlf617x5P7ycr-aQ7UAeSW_nYQY/edit?usp=sharing

We will not be having One Trusted Adult tomorrow, but will have a regular schedule instead.

Speaking of illness, Nurse Maddy asked that I pass the following message along to students and parents:

_______________

We are experiencing high levels of absenteeism due to colds, flu, COVID-19, and gastro-intestinal illness. See below for steps your family can take to prevent the spread of illness this season.

  • Keep sick children at home. If your child is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19/Flu ( fever, cough, sore throat, headaches, body aches, fatigue, vomiting, diarrhea etc) please keep them home and contact your healthcare provider.

  • Report symptoms and absences to the School Nurse (744-8162 X 2510)

  • Encourage frequent and thorough hand washing with warm water and soap. This is the best way to prevent the spread of germs.

  • Remind children to not share food, utensils and drinks with others.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
