 If at any time during the school year your child's physician recommends any physical restrictions PLEASE inform the nurse immediately.

Breakfast- Let's get off to an energetic start each morning by eating a healthy breakfast each and every morning, either at home or by making arrangements to obtain breakfast in school.  Research shows children perform better in school with a nutritious start to their day. Studies also indicate that 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated with it being the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue and constipation causing tummy aches.     
SAFETY FIRST!--Please send your child to school EVERY DAY wearing socks & sneakersespecially on GYM days!  (please avoid sandals and high heeled shoes of any kind.)
