|WHEN TO KEEP SICK CHILDREN HOME - IMPORTANT INFORMATION|
Keep a Sick Child at
Home if You See the Following:
Fever. This is one symptom that automatically
rules out school, no questions. (Anywhere from 100 to 101 degrees or higher is
the usual guideline used by most schools.) Your sick student should be
fever-free without medication for at least 24 hours before you send him/her
back to school.
Diarrhea. This could be a sign of a viral
infection, so it’s best to keep your student at home. It’s also important to
keep rehydrating him/her with an oral
rehydrating solution when they have diarrhea, and the best way to do that is by
keeping them at home.
Vomiting. Aside from the fact that your student
won’t be comfortable, he/she could vomit again ( one bout of vomiting is
usually followed by another). Keep them home until they have gone 24 hours
without throwing up.
Cough. This depends on how severe the cough is.
Coughs can spread infection to other students. A serious cough can also keep a
child from getting a good night’s rest, which means they’ll be too tired for
school in the morning. As a general rule, if your student has a serious cough,
particularly if it’s accompanied by breathing troubles, call your doctor and
keep them home. But if it’s just a mild cough and no other symptoms, they can
probably go to school.
Rashes. Skin rashes could be a sign of a
contagious infection, such as impetigo. You should have a rash evaluated by a
doctor before sending your student to school.
Pinkeye (conjunctivitis). This infection can
quickly and easily spread from one child to another, as many parents of
grade-school age children already know all too well. Keep your student home
until the doctor says they may return.

|4K INFORMATION NIGHT - APRIL 10th|
On Monday, April 10, 2017, the Baldwin-Woodville Area School District will be hosting our annual 4K Registration/Information night. The event will be held in the Performing Arts Center at Baldwin-Woodville High School. The 4K presentation will start at 5:00 and last approximately 1/2 hour. The plan is to provide parents of prospective 4K students with the necessary information about our program. In addition, it offers us a chance to answer any questions that parents have about 4K in general. The required enrollment paperwork for 4K can be found below. It is also available at the Greenfield Elementary Office. Parents are welcome to bring completed paperwork with them to turn in on the 6th, or submit to the Greenfield Elementary Office at their convenience. Please be aware that we will also need to see a birth certificate to verify age when paperwork is collected. In addition to registration, parents will also have the opportunity to visit our three sites that evening.
Open House will be held at our Community Preschool, Junior Hawks, and Kid’s View locations from 5:30 - 6:30 P.M. If you have any questions, or desire additional information, please contact J.R. Dachel at 715-684-3334 x.2105. We look forward to seeing you at registration!
