As you know we have had several students absent in the past few weeks - in some cases between 10% to 15% at some of our schools.  We are aware that this is flu and strep season, and we wanted to inform you of the things we are doing to disinfect our schools.
    *  Our custodians and staff are disinfecting desks, knobs, restrooms, etc. each day and night.
    *  Schools that have experienced multiple days of a 10% absence rate or higher - the district will be sending additional personnel armed with spray equipment to spray and wipe down surfaces throughout the school. 
    * All sprays used are hospital grade disinfectants to kill the germs each day and night.
    Our schools have been encouraging extra hand washing for students and staff as our Blackboard Connect message indicated last week.  We also ask that as parents you remind your students to wash their hands several times a day and we ask that you do not send your children to school with a fever.  Children need to be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.
    Thank you for helping to keep our schools clean and safe...
