Are You Sick? Keep Others Healthy and Stay Home!

There are many people with colds, coughs and other illnesses. Remember to cover your cough and throw away your tissues immediately after using them. Handwashing will cut down on the germs you may spread. Getting some fresh air will help and if you have a fever or are sick, please do everyone a favor and stay home. Your school and office will thank you!
