From the Desk: Winter Colds

Weekly letter to the community from Island Trees Superintendent of Schools, Charles Murphy.

Editor's Note: The following letter to the editor was submitted by Charles Murphy, ITSD Superintendent. 

With the arrival of winter-like weather, we are beginning to see the signs of cold and flu season in Island Trees. 

 To prevent the spread of colds, flus and other viruses, we recommend that your child stay home from school if they experience any of the symptoms associated with these ailments.  

Although we stress the importance of good attendance, very little learning will actually take place if your child is trying to persevere under these circumstances.  Our staff is very understanding and will allow your child the opportunity to make-up their school work. 

 Equally important, the absence will not only help your child’s recovery, but will also reduce the spread of these illnesses throughout our school buildings.

 If you have any questions about your child’s health in school, please contact our school nurses at the following numbers:

Island Trees High School 520-2148

Island Trees Memorial Middle School 520-2164

Stokes Elementary School 520-2106

Sparke Elementary School 520-2129
