A reminder that you must keep your students home from school if they have any Covid-19 symptoms such as: 

  • Fever, 
  • Cough, 
  • Chills, 
  • Shortness of breath, 
  • Fatigue, 
  • Muscle/body aches, 
  • Headache, 
  • Loss of smell/taste, 
  • Sore throat, 
  • Congestion/runny nose, 
  • Nausea or vomiting.

If your child has a medical condition which includes any one of the symptoms previously mentioned, you can get a doctor's note saying what the condition is, what the symptoms are, and what worsening conditions would require the student to be sent home.

If you have any questions please call me at 575-812-5465
Thank you, Kim Warf
