Attention Parents: We have been notified of multiple cases of Influenza in the Lowcountry area. Per the CDC guidelines:
Those who get flu-like symptoms at school should go home and stay home until at least 24 hours after they no longer have a fever or signs of a fever without the use of fever-reducing medicine. 
Yes, this means you will miss several days of school. Please let the office know if your child has tested positive or has symptoms of the flu. Be a part of the solution, not the problem. Do NOT give your child Tylenol and send them to school, thinking it is teething or just over tired. This flu can be quite deadly. Please refer to the CDC for the number count daily. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our children healthy and safe!

Ms. Kim’s Notes

The Easter Bunny is coming soon, so it’s time to bring in two dozen plastic “filled” eggs! We will be having class parties and an Easter Egg Extravaganza on Wednesday, March 28th. All students are asked to bring in two dozen “filled” plastic eggs with the class labeled on the bag no later than Friday, March 23rd. The office will collect all eggs as they come in. The eggs may have novelty items as well as candy, but make sure they are age appropriate for your child’s class. Extra eggs are always welcome.

If you are in the building after 6:15pm, that is considered late and late fees will automatically apply from the time you scan your fingerprint to pick-up your child. Our staff have families and obligations and need to be out at their scheduled time. You may complimentary call our office if you are going to be late, however, this does not exempt you from the late fees. If you need time in your child’s classroom checking cubbies or chatting with the office or teacher, plan your time accordingly. Any time after 6:15pm, fees must be added.

Please note that if your child is absent or sent home after developing fever, vomiting, diarrhea, rash, cough, green runny nose, or anything that is contagious, it is our policy that he or she must remain home until symptom-free for 24-hours, without the aid of medication regardless of your Doctor’s note of return. This means your child will not be allowed to attend that following school day. A child must stay home when their condition causes one-on-one care. Please review our sick policy in your Parent Handbook.


Health Notes 

Flu activity is continuing to increase in the Lowcountry and while it’s unknown when the flu season activity will peak, DHEC is encouraging South Carolinians to protect themselves against the flu. In an effort to help protect well children from unnecessary exposure to contagious or infectious diseases, we ask that if you have any flu-like symptoms and/or fever, do not send your children to school. You can help prevent many illnesses by making sure your child receives immunizations and by making sure you are not masking the disease with medications such as Tylenol or children’s cold medicines.


Parent Reminders

*Don’t forget Daylight Savings on Sunday, March 11th. Set your clocks forward one hour.

*Weather change is here and so are the bugs! Remember to apply your bug spray every morning prior to leaving home, so your child can enjoy playground time without bugs biting. This also includes sunscreen. Teachers will only reapply in the afternoon if necessary.

*Now is the perfect time to check your child’s cubby for an extra change of clothes. Take home winter clothes, and replace with warmer weather items. Also, please remember to return LCD’s spare clothes.

*If you leave a car seat, please make sure it is labeled in large, bold print. LCD is not responsible for car seats left on the premises.

*Special reminder, all medications for children must be signed in at the office, accompanied by a physician’s note. Medications that are prescribed once or twice daily must be given at home.

*Please do not park in the bypass lane when picking up/dropping off.


Serving Christ,
Ms. Kim
