Current Health Concerns in Community

Hello Parents of Spectrum,

We have created this new page to educate you about the different illnesses that are occurring at school and in the surrounding community.  We will be updating it monthly, or more often as needed.

We hope this is helpful to you in the care of your student!

Sincerely,

Terri Dlouhy
Lead Health Clerk
