Health

Passport to Winter Fun, if your child would like to participate please turn in the front flap of the booklet by Monday, January 30th.

Newton still has a stomach bug going around as well as a virus causing fever, headache and a cough. Please make sure your child is better before he/she returns to school. This prevents others from getting sick and your child from getting a secondary infection. There are cases of flu in Vermont. It is not too late to immunize your child against the flu. Please call Nurse Ellen if you have a questions/concern.

If your family could use some assistance putting food in your cupboards or heating oil in your tank, here is a list of local resources that can help you.
