ILLNESS AND SCHOOL ATTENDANCE
Do you know the policy for when your child will be sent home if he/she has a fever? And how long the child should remain home before returning to school? We are moving into the season where illnesses are going around the school. To review the policy on illness and school attendance, visit the From the School Nurse webpage.
If your student is absent from school for any reason, a phone call or note from a parent or guardian is required for the absence to be an excused absence. If your student needs to leave school early and will be driving themselves OR be picked up by someone other than a parent or guardian, you will need to call the school in advance for the student to leave early with that person. Again, emails are not acceptable to excuse absences or tardies.

NATIVE AMERICAN EXHIBITION
On November 20, 2013, the members of the American Indian Youth Leadership Council presented a dancing exhibition and shared Indian customs and other information with the rest of the South Haven student body. Christian Friedman played the drum and sang the Indian chants. He also accompanied members of the club as they danced in authentic American Indian costumes. Students were then asked to come from the audience and join the dancing. One elementary student said, "I didn't know my friend was an American Indian. We learned a lot of neat facts. I saw how the American Indians salute the American and Kansas flags. The boys danced around the drum, and the girls danced a different dance on the outside of the circle, honoring the drum and the boys."
