Dear Monroe-Woodbury families and staff,

With the allergy and flu season upon us, I am writing to share some important health reminders. The district is committed to keeping our schools open and we are grateful for your partnership and continued support in helping ensure our students remain healthy.

Returning to school after illness
We recognize many students are suffering from cold-like symptoms, such as a runny nose or scratchy throat, as a result of seasonal allergies. Although these types of isolated symptoms do not warrant a child’s absence from school, we ask that you err on the side of caution when multiple symptoms are present. We must remain vigilant as we continue to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

If your child will miss school due to an illness, please email your school’s attendance office in the morning and share specifically what symptoms your child is experiencing. This will help our schools keep accurate health and attendance records.

Please note that if a student has multiple COVID-like symptoms and a fever of more than 100.4 degrees, a medical clearance letter from a licensed healthcare provider will be required for a student to return to school.

I have attached a list of local medical care providers for your reference.

Reminder – Mask Mandate
Please remind your child that masks must be worn when inside schools (other than meal times) and riding on school buses. Please reinforce this practice with your child.
