A MESSAGE FROM OUR SCHOOL NURSES
The Flu is here at the Bres. We have 6 officially diagnosed cases in the past 2 weeks. In order to have an official diagnosis a nasal swab needs to be done and results positive. It is very safe to assume there are more cases of the Flu among us because not everyone seeks medical attention and unfortunately not every physician does the testing. 
 
As we have heard this years strain of the Flu is very strong. Each year the government studies the strains of the Flu from the previous year and makes a vaccine based on a prediction of what strains they feel will be the strongest for the upcoming year. As you may have heard this years Flu vaccine is not as effective as hoped. However, getting the vaccine will lessen the symptoms in many people. that is why it is important to talk to your physician about getting the Flu vaccination if you have not done so already.
 
For information from the CDC regarding the flu please click to read the flyer.

ANOTHER FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION:

What time does school start and what time will my child be marked absent?

ANSWER:

For Grades K-3:

School begins in the classroom at 8:20 AM.  This is when the teacher starts their morning beginning with attendance.  Students will be marked absent if they are not in the classroom when attendance is taken.  This is why a tardy slip is issued when students arrive past 8:20 AM.  The tardy slip is then entered into the system which cancels out the “absence”.

Please note:  When students are arriving tardy for school (i.e. after medical/dental appointments etc., they should be accompanied by an adult to the appropriate office).

Preschool:

All morning preschool students begin at 8:30 AM.  Afternoon preschool students start at 12:15 PM.

A Message from the Grade 1-3 Office

 When There is a Dismissal Change for Your Child on a “Given Day”:

 

  • Please send a dated/signed note in your child’s backpack/folder to the teacher detailing the change.  
  • Note:  Emailing the teacher may not work if there is a sub or the teacher hasn’t had a chance to check email!

  • When a “last minute” change of dismissal is necessary please call the office before 1:00 p.m.

 

Following this procedure will hopefully reduce the number of these calls the office currently receives daily.

We thank you for your assistance!
