Study Tip for the Week

Encourage your children (1st-9th grade) to begin memorizing their speech meet parts early.  The dinner table is a great place to practice.  Start by having each child read through his selection, beginning and ending with the title and author.  The next night have them recite as much as they can, reading the remainder that has not been memorized yet.  By the time the speech meet comes around, the whole family will be ready to hit the stage and perform!

Guidelines for Keeping Sick Children Home

Colds: Please keep your child at home if he has a fever over 100 degrees or is experiencing discomfort that would interfere with his ability to perform in school (i.e. uncontrollable coughing, severe lack of energy).

Conjunctivitis (pink-eye): Follow your doctor’s advice for returning to school.

Diarrhea/Vomiting: A child with diarrhea and / or vomiting should stay at home and return to school only after being symptom-free for 24 hours.

Fever: The child should remain at home with a fever greater than 100 degrees.  The child can return to school after he has been fever free for 24 hours (without fever-reducing medicine such as Tylenol or Motrin).
