Cold & Flu Season:  We are now officially in the Cold & Flu Season.  At Halsey Schools, we follow our written Illness Policy and written illness prevention procedures.  We make every effort to assure your child contracts as few illnesses as possible.  However, most children and adults will contract at least one illness between now and April.  Remember to wash your child’s hands everyday before leaving school or any other social event.
