School Health - Information for Parents
Parents play an important role in the positive development of their children. Involvement in schools is a key part of the child’s learning success.

Please remember the need for physical distancing, hand hygiene, respiratory etiquette, and cleaning frequently touched surfaces and toys, when planning activities for children. Learn more →
