Dear parents,

Looks (and feels) like it is finally time to break the winter coats out for good!

A big hats off to our PTO for another successful Holiday Bazaar last Saturday. It was a packed house with a lot of great gifts for the taking. I continue to be appreciative of their work and ongoing support of Dublin Jerome High School.

You should have received a separate email this week about our upcoming exam schedule. It is normal for students to have a healthy level of stress about exams, but please reach out to your child's teacher if you feel like something isn’t sitting right at home. We still have time to help if needed.

Have a great weekend!

A Message From The School Nurse

Cold and flu season is here! As a reminder, hand washing is the number one way to prevent the spread of illness! Sleep, good nutrition, daily exercise, and positivity also help keep us healthy. District policy states that students having symptoms of fever 100 degrees or higher, vomiting, diarrhea, or other signs of a possible communicable disease, will be excluded until they are symptom-free for 24 hours without the benefit of medication.

For common communicable illnesses (such as strep throat, pink eye, ring worm), in which medication is required for treatment, students must complete a minimum of 24 hours of therapy before returning to school. For other communicable diseases (such as whooping cough, MRSA, or chicken pox) the exclusion time will be longer and may require a physician's note to return to school.

Please contact the school clinic if your child becomes ill after school or on the weekend so that the parents of those with weakened immune systems can be informed (names will never be given).

Thank you and best wishes for a healthy and happy school year!
