Dr. Terrance Roberts is one of the Little Rock Nine, a group of African American students who, in 1957, were the first black students ever to attend classes at Little Rock Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. He is a living legend and an integral part of the Civil Rights movement! He will be here to speak to our 8th grader students on Thursday, January 30, 2020.
From Nurse Jacobson: We continue to see an increase in sore throats, coughs, vomiting, flu-like symptoms and fevers. Parents please keep your children home from school when there has been vomiting, diarrhea and/or fever. Students need to remain at home until there has been no vomiting, diarrhea, or fever for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducers or medications to alleviate symptoms. These medications do not cure children, they improve symptoms while students continue to expose other students and staff to their illnesses.
