    DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME Daylight Savings Time


Turn your clocks back 1 hour before you go to bed Saturday night.


Thermometer       Sick Child      Sick Boy   
 Cold and Flu Season are here!   


If you feel your child is sick or might be sick, we ask you to please keep them at home.

If your child's temperature is 99.6 degrees or higher, it is considered a low-grade temperature. Please keep your child at home as whatever your child has is now considered contagious.   
A child must be FEVER FREE (NO fever) and not vomiting, WITHOUT any medications  (Acetaminophen/ Tylenol, Ibuprofen/Motrin) in their system for at least 24 hours before they can return to school.

If your child suddenly comes down with the following symptoms:  fever, headache, muscle aches, sore throat, cough, fatigue, rash, nausea or vomiting - we encourage you to contact your local physician and discuss your child's symptoms.
Do not forget to let your school secretary know that your child will not be in school. If you would like to pick up any homework after school, please let the secretary know at that time.

Washing Hands    
 Make Hand-Washing a Habit   


Kids who wash their hands at least four times a day have 24 percent fewer sick days from colds and flu, and 51 percent fewer sick days due to stomach illnesses.  (American Public Health Association).

Teach kids to scrub their whole hands - up to the wrists and under the fingernails - and to do it long enough to sing the ABCs or "Happy Birthday" all the way through.  A timer works well, too.

Bottle of Medicine


Students are not allowed to "self-medicate" themselves while at school.

All meds must go to the office and must have a CLS Medication Form filled out completely.

Danger No Peanuts Severe Allergy

Calvary is now a Peanut/Tree Nut Free School campus.

We have several students who are extremely sensitive to any and all peanut/tree nuts products and this is very dangerous to their health and well-being.  Some students could even have such a severe reaction to nuts that it becomes life threatening, and we wouldn't want this to happen.

We ask that everyone here at CLS to please do not send your child to school with any snacks or lunches that have peanuts or are from a tree nut.  These types of snacks and lunches might be reserved for something special, like a special treat at home.  Thank You
         Peanut and Tree Nut Free School                                  This School is Nut Free

"My son, accept my words and store up my commands within you,
turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, 
and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, 
and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, 
then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God. 
For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. 
He holds victory in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, 
for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones. 
Then you will understand what is right and just and fair--every good path. 
For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. 
(Prov. 2:1-11, NIV)
