**NINJAS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD** - LAPS FOR LYMPHOMA – This event has been CANCELLED for this evening due to weather conditions. It will be rescheduled next week; information will be forthcoming. The fundraiser money is still due Friday, September 30. Please do not send the collection envelopes in before September 30th.

RECORDERS – students in grades 3, 4 & 5 who would like to purchase a recorder, should return the order form and money by Friday, September 30th.

FROM THE NURSE – Is my child too sick to attend school today? Parents are often confronted with the decision when their child complains of not feeling well. These guidelines will help you decide if you should keep your child home from school. Not every medical condition is covered and does not take the place of seeking advice from your pediatrician. Please consult your doctor for more specific medical advice. You should keep your child home if he or she has. . .

> Temperature over 100 degrees in the last 12-24 hours. If you suspect your child is sick, please check their temperature with a thermometer before sending them to school. If they have a fever, it is not appropriate to send them to school, even if you give them Tylenol and their fever breaks. They will still be contagious to other children and will also not feel well enough to learn.

> Vomiting or diarrhea in the last 12-24 hours.

> An unexplained rash.

> Earache.

> Red or crusty eyelids or drainage from the eyes.

> Headache, cough, sore throat, or congestion severe enough to interfere with attention to school work.

> Flare-ups of asthma that would make it difficult to work in school.
