Important message from Nurse Carey

Hello Bobcats and parents, we can’t wait to have you back in school with us. I wanted to remind you all of a few things before you return.

Please make sure you wear your mask every day before entering school.

You should wash your hands before and after recess when they are dirty and before and after you eat.

Please remember not to share things with your friends unless your teacher has disinfected them.

We want everyone at Broad Ford to stay healthy and learn.

Parents: Please do not send your children to school if they are ill or have a fever greater than 100.4.
If you keep your child home for illness or fever, the child must be fever-free for 24 hours without medication before returning.
