Mrs McLennan will be in the main front office for the first two blocks of each day for the next 5 weeks.  Please bring your first aid needs to the student office. Could I ask that staff not send children unless it is absolutely necessary. If they have a headache get them to have a large drink of water and fresh air first and see what they are like in 10 mins, then send them if necessary. All classes should have a supply of bandaids. If not please let me know.
