Nurse Kim would like to remind all students & staff that flu season is upon us, and she wants to make sure everyone stays healthy all the time, but especially for finals, and the holidays. Did you hear the joke about the flu?  I’m not telling you, I don’t want to spread it around!  Other than my bad joke, here are a few other ways to prevent spreading it around: Flu shots are still available at most local pharmacies, your physician’s offices, and health department, these are NOT required, but highly recommended.  Also if you have a fever over 100.4 please stay home, always remember to cough into your elbow rather than your hand, and the most effective way of preventing the flu is frequent hand washing!

Fall play DVD’s are still available for order!  The deadline is tomorrow!  DVDs are $10 each and any questions or orders please talk to Teresa Lograsso.

There will be an informational meeting for anyone interested in Poetry Out Loud today after school in room 370.  If you are unable to attend please see Mrs. Eaton.
