We will be holding a Lockdown Drill on Thursday, 11/21 at 10:00AM. Similar to Fire Drills, the hope is that we can better prepare our students to deal with emergency situations. Please feel free to discuss the drill with your student and to reach out to the office with any questions.                              


Every winter, bad weather — snow, slush, freezing temperatures or even heavy rains — can present challenges to getting children to school; so do colds, fevers and earaches that often come with the winter months. Here are some tips:

  1. Keep Your Children Healthy

a. Dress them warmly for the cold weather (coats, hats, mittens, snow pants, etc.) We go outside most days for recess.

b. Stress the importance of eating a good breakfast every morning. 

c. Stress hand washing, particularly in the winter months. 

d. Talk to your doctor or school nurse about when a sick child should come to school. Most health providers allow a child to attend with a cold, but not with a fever. 

2. Develop back up plans for getting your children to school in bad weather.

Flu season is upon us, and flu clinics abound.  I highly encourage all that are able to get a flu shot.  Here are three upcoming clinics where you do NOT need an appointment and shots are free: 

- Monday, 11/18 at Dike Newell School  4:00 PM - 7:00 PM

- Monday, 11/25 at the Woolwich Central School 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM 

For our clinic this year I am going to allow your students to get flu shots without the parent/guardian being present.  If that is what you desire you MUST fill out a form in advance of the clinic.  I have them on my desk so you should call me, (or send me an email) to have one sent home. You can also stop by to fill it out. Students cannot get a shot without you here, if the form is not completed. I am offering this as many parents work and it is hard to get here.  There is NO CHARGE for this flu shot. If you have any questions please let me know. ~ Nurse Sherwood
