How to Keep the Schools Healthy!
It’s that time of year where colds, flus and other ailments are prevalent! A number of students in the schools have been sick, and we’d like to share some reminders on how to prevent the spread of illnesses. There are two things you can do to help keep your family and fellow community members healthy!
Teach your children to wash their hands well!
Always practice good hand washing. Please take a minute to read through the CDC’s guidelines on hand washing to refresh your understanding.

Keep your children home when they are too sick to be in school!
The Colorado Dept. of Public Health and Environment has guidelines for parents on when children should stay home from school. Please follow these guidelines when your child is ill!
