Fighting sickness with prevention

With cold weather comes illness, and in a small school like Penelope, germs can spread quickly. The best way we can fight sickness is with prevention, so it is important that sick students stay home for at least 24 hours after they have shown any symptoms. This is especially true if the student has fever, vomiting, or diarrhea. At Penelope School, we understand that keeping a student home can sometimes be inconvenient for parents with busy schedules, so we greatly appreciate your hard work in keeping our students and staff healthy. Thank you for helping to make our school a safe place to learn and grow!
