Sick Students - Please Stay Home
We have noticed an increase in the number of ill students coming to school. Please do not send your child to school if they are feeling unwell, especially if their temperature is 37.5C or higher, or if they have a cough, runny nose, diarrhea or rash. As recommended by the CHP, Department of Health, we strongly advise parents to check the body temperature of their child everyday before going to school. Many thanks for helping us maintain a safe and healthy environment at CDNIS.
