STUDENT SICKNESS POLICY
As we head into cold and flu season, we wanted to remind parents about the school’s student sickness policy. Students need to be fever-free, have not vomited or had diarrhea for at least 24 hours before returning to school. If your child is sick:
1) Call the school office at (510) 339-6100 to inform them of the absence and the reason
2) If you forget to call, please provide a written note to the office the first day the student returns including the student’s name, grade, and date(s) and reason for absence.
Check out the OUSD website for information regarding the flu and ways to stay healthy this season.
Today is the first of many scheduled tours for 2015-2016 prospective families. If you know of prospective families who are interested in our school and would like to attend one of the tours, encourage them to contact the school office by calling (510) 339-6100. Slots are filling up quickly for the November and December dates.
Tours are led by MES parents. If you are interested in leading a tour, there will be an orientation meeting for new volunteers (past volunteers are also welcome to attend) on Friday, November 14, 5pm in the Multipurpose Room.
