Wellness Reminder for Parents
A parent’s decision to keep a child home from school when he or she is sick can sometimes be a difficult one.
No parent wants to interrupt their child’s learning, and for some, keeping a child home means missing work or losing pay.

By taking this step, parents can help their children get better faster as well as prevent the spread of illness to others. The following links offer helpful medical advice to parents.
