 yesWith the warmer spring weather comes allergies, ticks, sunburns, etc...

Because allergies mimic COVID-19, please call your family doctor for further instruction if your child is exhibiting symptoms.  The doctor may elect to test for COVID.  If the doctor confirms the symptoms are allergies, please ask them to send a fax to the school at (434) 299-6037.  Thank you!

See "Spring Nurse Bulletin" to the left.

Please do a daily wellness check on your child:

Does your child have cold/flu-like symptoms such as nasal drainage, sore throat, persistent cough, difficulty breathing, headache, chills, significant muscle aches/pains, loss of taste/smell or diarrhea?  OR does your child have a fever? 
KEEP HOME

See column to left for more detailed information on COVID-19.

Please provide your child with a mask.

Make sure your child knows how to properly put on his/her mask.  

Reinforce proper hand washing with your child (a minimum of 20 seconds with warm, soapy water).
